Firefighters were called to reports of a detached property alight off the A258 Sandwich Road in Sholden, near Deal in the early hours of this morning, 24 July 2022.

Upon arrival, just after 2.00am crews were faced with a well-established fire which had spread to the roof.

Four fire engines and a height vehicle were brought in and crews in breathing apparatus set about tackling the flames with main jets.

They were able to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby standing crops, however the property was completely destroyed by the fire.
