Incident - Fire Inv Washing Machine

Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

A fire appliance from Somerton was mobilised following a call from the occupant of a property saying they had smoke issuing from their washing machine and had isolated it from the electrics. Whilst there was a believe that the fire was out at the time of call, we attended for an inspection, as a precaution. 

Shortly after arriving and carrying out an inspection our crew confirmed that there had been a very small fire within the washing machine, due to a blown motor and it was out on our arrival. There was no damage to either the washing machine or the property and once some advice was given by ourselves, duty of care was left with the owner.
