Firefighters called to vehicle blaze in Margate

The vehicle fire was on land off Broadley Road

Firefighters were called to a vehicle blaze in Margate last night (January 12) which is thought to have been started deliberately.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called at 10.26pm to the vehicle alight on farmland off Broadley Road.

A KFRS spokesperson said: “A firefighter wearing breathing apparatus used a high-pressure hose reel jet to put out the flames.

“There are no reports of any injuries and the cause of the fire is thought to be deliberate. Duty of care was passed to Kent Police and the landowner.”

KFRS finished at the scene at 11.30pm.

Kent Police attended but say no offences have been reported.


  1. Kent Police attended but say no offences have been reported. So setting fire to cars is not a criminal offence? Arson is now legal? Do people now have to tell the police that an offence has been committed, like a bowler appealing an out in Cricket?

  2. I remember some years ago a car was burnt out in joss bay park park. The owner told the police and insurance “ my car has been stolen. The police found the keys in the ignition.

  3. Do the phalanx of weirdos who post the same tedious banalities beneath every single article on this site ever take a day off?

    • The answer to your question is ”no”.

      But then they are not familiar with the words ”phalanx” and ”banalities” – and even ”tedious” may cause a modicum of consternation.

  4. well actualy some people speak the truth , and say it as it is , and do not try to sugar coat things , and live in this dream world that thanet is some kind of shangri la , and have little or no interest in art , which i very much imagine you do ?
    ps – if some of us wanted an english lesson would buy one – thanks
