Two next-door neighbours argued about who started a fire as it burned down the fence between their homes.
The blazing row in Mountbatten Avenue, Chatham, Kent, was captured on video by a passing motorcyclist.
It shows the woman resident shouting and waving her arms at her neighbour while shouting: “That’s your fault.”
She added: “You’ll pay for it, don’t just stand there and watch it, you done that.”
As the fence continues to burn, a witness shouts “get some water”.
Ansis Valdmanis, who posted the clip to the Medway Miserables Facebook page, told the Kent Messenger: “I was driving my motorbike when I saw this smoke above the house roof.
“My first thoughts was that the actual house was on fire.
“When I drove a bit closer I realised that the fence between two properties was burning and the old lady was blaming her next door neighbour.
“Then 2 fire brigades arrived and got everything under control.”
Another neighbour, Jenniee Jordan, wrote on Facebook: “There was so many people out there just watching it idiots!
“My partner ran over to get everyone out the houses luckily enough it didn’t get to out of control.”
Kent Fire and Rescue said two fire engines responded to the incident and put out the flames.
“There were no reported injuries and the cause isn’t known,” added a spokeswoman.
