One of the huts was completely destroyed with the neighbouring huts suffering severe damage.

Later at 4.35pm, fire crews from The Ridge and Bexhill were alerted to a fire at a property on Gensing Road with the initial call claiming people were trapped.

But on arrival crews confirmed everyone was accounted for.

There was a small fire in the fridge freezer and crews used two breathing apparatus and one Co2 extinguisher, with firefighters carrying out a home safety visit afterwards.
