Kent Fire and Rescue Service responded to a fire in a building of two floors converted into purpose built flats in Albert Road, Chatham. Four fire engines attended, along with Kent Police.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reels to put the fire out. Everyone has been accounted for and crews will shortly be released from the scene. The cause of the fire is not yet known but is being investigated.
A Red Cross vehicle has also been requested. This facility is delivered by specially trained British Red Cross volunteers who use an adapted vehicle to assist them in providing practical and emotional support to the victims of fire, flood or other unfortunate circumstances.
