Fire crews urged people to keep their windows and doors closed after an industrial storage container caught alight near Ramsgate.
Three fire engines were called to the blaze in Monkton Road in Minster at about 1.30pm.
A plume of smoke could be seen coming from the container, believed to contain waste building materials and other waste.
The incident commander issued an early warning message to nearby properties advising residents to close windows and doors as a precaution.
Crews used a fog spike and a cold-cut firefighting system to reduce the temperature inside the container before fully extinguishing the blaze.
There are no reports of any injuries and the cause of the fire has not been established.
Firefighters had left the scene by 3pm.
