Kent Fire and Rescue Service (KFRS) were called to Wrens Road in Bredgar earlier today (Wednesday 18th May) to reports of an open sided barn, containing baled hay that was well alight.
Crews used compressed air foam (CAFs) to tackle the blaze, that uses less water than traditional firefighting methods and is more environmentally sensitive providing rapid fire knockdown.
This was also sprayed on neighbouring properties to form a protective layer and prevent the fire spreading. Four fire engines and a bulk water carrier initially responded to the incident but it was reduced to two pumps at 4.00am this morning.
KFRS confirmed that one crew remained on the scene to keep a watching brief.
