Monday 16th September 2019
FIREFIGHTERS have tackled a mattress blaze in the stairwell of Maidstone’s Broadway Shopping Centre.
Crews were called in by police, who discovered the fire while responding to a burglar alarm that had been triggered at the site just after 3am on Sunday.
Two Kent Fire and Rescue Service engines were sent to the centre, and it took firefighters 30 minutes to supress the flames with a hose reel jet and clear smoke from the building using a fan.
Police say the cause of the blaze is not yet known.
