Burnt food sparks es­tate blaze fears

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Frankly Speaking -

Burnt cook­ing sparked panic overnight on a hous­ing es­tate hit by a dev­as­tat­ing blaze two years ago.

A man is re­ported to have over­cooked food then opened his front door, send­ing smoke bil­low­ing through flats in Creine Mill Lane North, Can­ter­bury. Fire crews were alerted and neigh­bours dashed into the street shortly af­ter 12.30am on Satur­day. For some it brought back mem­o­ries of the dev­as­tat­ing blaze of July 2015 which de­stroyed 15 homes on the Tan­nery Es­tate and badly dam­aged 29 more.

One res­i­dent said: “It is so hor­ri­ble for any­body, let alone any­one that ex­pe­ri­enced the pre­vi­ous one. The re­sponse from the fire bri­gade was quick and they sent many engines in prepa­ra­tion for the worst.”
