Fire crews say fire was accidental due to tumble dryer
Firefighters said a blaze that broke out in a garage in Budleigh Salterton was accidental, putting it down to a tumble dryer.
Fire crews from Exmouth and Budleigh were called to Redhills at around 3.30pm on Tuesday, May 28, where smoke was seen coming from a garage.
Firefighters wore breathing apparatus while tackling the blaze with a hose reel jet.
After the fire was extinguished, crews used a ventilation fan to clear smoke from the garage.
A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “The cause was deemed to be accidental due to a tumble dryer. Duty of care was left with the owners.”
