White goods might not be the right goods

Alert message sent 03/01/2019 17:09:00

Information sent on behalf of Humberside Fire & Rescue

Two recent fires in the Hull area have once again highlighted the dangers of white goods in the kitchen. 

Crews from Calvert Lane attended two separate house fires in the space of 24 hours as 2018 drew to a close.

Both incidents involved dishwashers which had suffered electrical faults which started fires in the kitchen. Thankfully no-one was injured in either incident, but the two fires demonstrated the importance of following a few simple tips to minimise the risk to life or the home.

White goods such as tumble dryers or dishwashers are a significant fire risk due to their high wattage, friction and motors. Ensure they are bought from a reputable source and always follow manufacturers instructions.
