Firefighters have spent part of this afternoon tackling a rubbish fire believed to have been started by a discarded cigarette.
The fire in Hubert Walter Drive, Maidstone, around 3pm needed two fire engines to tackle the blaze with crews using hose reel jets.
No-one was injured, but Kent Fire and Rescue Service have re-issued an appeal for people not to discard cigarettes or matches outside, and to ensure they are fully out before disposing of them carefully.
