Six fire en­gines, around 40 fire­fight­ers, a height ve­hi­cle and bulk wa­ter car­rier were sent to tackle the fire.

Mrs Hor­ton, who works at the Ray Allen Cen­tre in Stan­hope, said: “I can’t thank ev­ery­one who helped out enough. It has made what hap­pened bear­able. There is so much we still have to do but we are try­ing to get a bit of nor­mal­ity back. Tianna is back at school and Thomas is back at work.”

Kent Po­lice say the fire in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still on­go­ing.
