FIREFIGHTERS tackled a tumble dryer fire, sparked by a suspected electrical fault.
Crews rushed to Mablethorpe Road, Paulsgrove, at around 4.20pm yesterday.
Firefighters used two sets of breathing apparatus and a hose reel to tackle the blaze.
The blaze was confined to the machine and as a result no damage was done to the home.
The cause is thought to be an electrical fault with the tumble dryer.
Crews were back at the station by 5.15pm.
