A neighbouring property's roof space has suffered heavy smoke logging. Firefighters used breathing apparatus, a hose reel jet and main jet to tackle the fire.
A thermal imaging camera has been used on neighbouring homes to check for the possible risk of fire spread. A cat was rescued from the property next door.
A ventilation fan has also been used to clear smoke.
Red Cross volunteers have been notified to support the home owner.
A neighbour said: "I didn't see a thing - it just amazes me. I couldn't believe all the fire engines were out here and the smell of plastic - I didn't hear anything until about half an hour ago."
Crews from Rochester, Strood, Thames-side, Maidstone and a retained from Hoo helped tackle the fire.
An investigation into the cause of the fire is under way.
