AN electrical fault sparked a fire in a washing machine.

Two crews from Southsea fire station were called out to a property in Velder Avenue, Milton, at 6pm last night.

The washing machine, which was in the kitchen, had overheated and caught fire.

It took a few minutes to put out and the firefighters removed the washing machine.
