BREAKING: Car fire 'started deliberately' in Maidstone

Monday 19th April 2021

A CAR fire near Barming is believed to have been started deliberately.

Two fire engines attended the scene off Hermitage Lane in the early hours of this morning.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used hose reel jets to extinguish the flames, which had started to spread to a nearby log pile and a hedge.

No casualties were reported.

A KFRS spokesman confirmed: "It’s believed the fire was started deliberately."
