Incident - Property Fire

Date: 18/04/2021
Time: 20:46
Location: Tower View, Frome
Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

Two fire appliances from Frome attended a tumble dryer that had caught fire in a property. All persons were out of the building. Crews got to work with breathing apparatus and one hose reel jet in the ground floor kitchen, extinguishing the fire. Gas and electricity to the property was isolated, and the tumble dryer was eventually removed from the building.

Crews used a thermal imaging camera to check for possible fire spread, and cleared the property of smoke using a positive pressure fan.

The property was damaged by the fire, severe to the utility, and moderate to the whole ground floor. The cause of the fire was accidental. Duty of care was left with the occupant.
