Dishwasher bursts into flames in midnight blaze
Firefighters were called to tackle a faulty dishwasher fire in the early hours of this morning.
Crews from Blackpool and South Shore fire stations arrived at a house in Harrison Street, central Blackpool, to find the appliance alight at around 12.46am.
A spokesman for the Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters wore breathing masks, and used a hose reel jet to put out the flames.
A large fan unit was later used to clear the property of smoke.
The firefighters were at the scene for around 25 minutes.
