Fire in flats - Herne Bay
Five people have been taken to hospital following reports of a fire in a four-storey block of flats in Central Parade, Herne Bay. Four were thought to be suffering from the effects of breathing in smoke, while one was treated for minor burns to their hands.
Firefighters were called after smoke and fumes left one person unable to leave their property. Crews wearing breathing apparatus quickly entered the premises and led people to safety, before tackling the blaze using a high-pressure hose reel jet.
There are no other reports of any injuries and the cause is not known.
