Firefighters are at the scene

Dozens of people have been left homeless after a huge fire devastated a block of flats in Snodland.

The apartments in Holborough Lakes have been badly damaged after flames broke out yesterday morning.

At its height, around 100 firefighters from across Kent were tackling the fire, which is believed to have started in the roof.

No one was injured, but the Red Cross was brought in to help people who'd had to leave their homes.



Investigations are now taking place to work out how it started.

A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue Service told Heart firefighters will remain at the scene on Sunday.



He added: "We are working with the local authorities and Berkeley Homes to help provide support and information.

"Temporary accommodation being provided where needed."
