999 BLAZE: Fire destroys garage and cars near Maidstone

Monday 27th September 2021

FIREFIGHTERS tackled a garage fire in Wateringbury.

Three fire engines attended the property in Cobbs Close at around 1.47pm on September 26.

Crews wore breathing apparatus while they extinguished the flames using hose reel jets.

Nobody was injured and the fire started accidentally due to an electrical fault. The fire destroyed the converted garage and spread to two parked cars on the driveway and fencing.


The fire also caused some heat damage to an adjourning conservatory.
