Incident
Large fire at scaffolding yard - Sutton-at-Hone near Dartford
Incident details
Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to a large fire at a scaffolding yard in Station Road. At its height over 30 firefighters tackled the blaze. Crews used a height vehicle, 3 main jets, a hose reel jet, the compressed air foam system and breathing apparatus to bring the fire under control. Due to the location of the fire, Farningham Road Railway Station had to be closed, as was Station Road. The closure of the train station impacted rail services in both directions. However all trains are now running as normal, both Station Road and Farningham Road Railway Station have re-opened.
