Firefighters used two Breathing Apparatus and a Thermal Imaging Camera to investigate. The fire was confirmed as accidental and caused by a short circuit. Electricity is often overlooked as a possible fire hazard. This may be because there is no flame. However, some 28,000 fires in the home are reported each year as being caused by electrical faults, accidents or misuse of electrical equipment. Did you know the average success rate of an electrical product recall in the UK is just 10-20%. This means that there are potentially millions of recalled electrical items still in UK homes. As most of these products have been recalled because they offer a risk of electric shock or electrical fire, they present a serious risk. If you have recently brought an electrical appliance make sure you register them at www.registermyappliance.org.uk so you know about any repairs or recalls.
