Safety Warning After Dishwasher Sparks House Fire

Dorset Fire And Rescue Engine

8:56am 4th April 2013

Dorset Fire and Rescue are urging us to check to see our dishwashers are safe.

The warning comes after a kitchen fire was caused by a faulty appliance.

The family had put their Bosch dishwasher on and gone to bed.  

Hours later they were woken up by their smoke alarm when the faulty appliance started a fire in their kitchen.

Luckily they were able to get out safely.

The dishwasher was part of a product recall by Bosch.  

This was for dishwashers made between 1999 - 2005 with model numbers from FD7901 to FD8504.

For more information or if you are concerned please contact the manufacturer
