Incident
Woodland fire in Dartford
Incident details
Update: 
 
Firefighting work is now complete at the scene of a fire involving woodland and an outbuilding off Darenth Wood Road, in Dartford. 
 
Five fire engines and a bulk water carrier attended and crews used main jets, hose reel jets and water from a hydrant to tackle the blaze. 
 
The cause is believed to be accidental after controlled burning in a skip ignited nearby rubbish and spread to the neighbouring outbuilding. 
 
The earlier advice to keep windows and doors closed as a precaution is no longer in place.
