Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to a grass fire on Dartford Heath. Three fire engines were sent to the scene to tackle the fire, which had spread to around 200 square metres of heathland. Crews used beaters and a hose reel jet to extinguish the fire. The cause of fire is unknown.
Firefighters are urging anyone who spots a fire in the countryside to report it as soon as possible, giving as much detail on the location so that it can be dealt with before it spreads.
