THREE flats were damaged after a tumble dryer caught fire.
Firefighters were called to Tyler House in Bishopstoke Road, Leigh Park, at about 8pm on Friday. A fire caught hold of a tumble dryer in a first-floor flat of the three-storey block.
Two flats on the ground floor suffered water damage from a burst pipe.
The fire was quickly put out but firefighters, from Havant, spent more than two hours trying to contain the leak.
Watch manager Martin Elliott, said: ‘We were trying to clean up the water damage. It had also affected the electrics.’
