Incident
House fire in Ashford
Incident details
Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to a house fire in Luddenham Close, Ashford in the early hours of this morning. Four fire engines attended and crews used three hose reel jets, two main jets and compressed air foam to extinguish the blaze, which completely destroyed the roof and first floor of the property. The residents, a mother and daughter, were outside of the property on arrival and crews managed to rescue two rabbits and a cat, but sadly one rabbit died. The fire is believed to have started in lighting within an upstairs bedroom. The KFRS Volunteer Response Team was also in attendance, assisting and supporting the residents, as well as neighbours whose properties had been affected by the fire.
