Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus are dealing with a fire in a derelict property in Gladstone Road, Whitstable, after the alarm was raised by a member of the public.

Crews are using a combination of high pressure hoses from local hydrant supplies and fire engine tanks to bring the blaze under control, with a large fan being used to drive smoke and fumes from the property.


Firefighters remain at the scene to finish the job. Initial reports of a person inside the property were thankfully proved inaccurate and there are no reports of any injuries.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
