So we awoke this morning to a garden full of white ash, and a street full of cars covered in ash. No explanation for this sudden transformation, just a very big mess!

And here is why: The remains of the lorry caught in the blaze. Picture by : Keyan Milanian

As reported on Kent Online: (

More than 50 firefighters tackled a blaze at a business park. Firefighters from across north Kent fought the huge blaze at a Swanscombe business park.  Crews were called to the unit at the Manor Way Business Park Swanscombe on Monday morning at around 12.45am.

Two crews from Thames-side, two from Dartford and appliances from Swanscombe, Cliffe, Horton Kirby and Swanley discovered a large quantity of baled paper, a car and a lorry on fire.

At 4am the fire was scaled down to three fire appliances but crews were still at the scene this morning as they continued to dampen down the area.

An investigation is expected to be launched.

No doubt our local hooligans are responsible for this, as burning things is just another night of fun. Here is a list of their recent achievements:

  • Cars burnt in the middle of a football field.
  • Portable Toilets
  • Telephone Booths
  • Trees
  • Wheelie Bin
  • Glass Recyclable bin
  • Paper Mill / Truck (new).
