Barn badly damaged by blaze
Firefighters tackled a blaze which badly damaged a wooden barn at a farm near Ashford.
Crews were called to Pook Lane, Smarden, at about 3pm on Thursday last week.
The fire is believed to have been caused by an electrical fault.
Firefighters say the whole building, which had been converted into a workshop, was alight and severely damaged by the fire.
At its height, there were about 20 firefighters tackling the blaze, which took nearly two hours to put out.
