Firefighters are using compressed air foam to battle the fire, which is affecting one large lorry.

Two fire engines are currently at the scene, but it is believed more could be on the way.

The road is blocked from Old Folkestone Road (Western Heights roundabout) to the B2011 (Court Wood Interchange).

More as we get it.
