Incident
Vigilant neighbour spots smoke from kitchen fire near Canterbury
Incident details
Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to a kitchen fire in a ground floor flat in Church Road, Hoath near Canterbury, after a neighbour reported seeing smoke coming from the window. When crews arrived they realised nobody was home, so entered wearing breathing apparatus and used a hose reel jet and a main jet to extinguish the fire. They also used a pressure fan to clear the smoke from the property. There were no injuries reported. Crews made the area safe. The cause of the fire isn’t known at this stage, but is thought to be suspicious and is being investigated.
