Res­i­dents in Ham­street were told to stay in­doors and close their win­dows af­ter a barn went up in flames late on Satur­day af­ter­noon. Fire crews and po­lice were called to the barn in The Street just af­ter 4pm, where a huge plume of smoke had risen from the blaze at the 200 sq me­tre barn. Fire en­gines from Ash­ford, Aldington, New Rom­ney, and Ayle­sham were called to the scene and stayed through the night. By Sun­day morn­ing one crew re­mained to damp down any hot spots, and they left at 2.30pm.
