Fire crews called to house fire in Hamstreet
Incident details
Kent Fire and Rescue Service's emergency control centre received a 999 call to reports of a house fire in Bank Side, Hamstreet just before 8pm. The alarms were sounding and smoke was seen coming from the rear of the end of terraced property. 
 
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus went into the house and discovered the fire on the first floor. They used a hose reel to put the fire out and administered oxygen to a man, thought to be about 30, who was suffering from the effects of breathing in smoke. 
 
A special fan was then used to clear smoke from the property. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
