Police are investigating ­after a derelict terraced house was thought to have been deliberately set on fire.

Firefighters from Thames-side, Dartford, Medway, Strood and ­Halling fought for more than two hours on Saturday night to prevent the blaze in the two-storey house from spreading to adjoining properties along Christianfields ­Avenue, Gravesend.

It was boarded up and awaiting demolition. Severe damage has been caused.

It was the second fire to break out in empty properties on Christianfields in the past six weeks.
