There's a 'Black Museum' on display at the Weymouth library.

It's highlighting the potential dangers in our homes of simple items that can easily catch fire.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is hoping their Safe &Well visit to the library will encourage people to be more vigilant to seemingly 'innocent' items in our homes.

Vanessa Harvey, from DWFRS said:

"These everyday items on display - heaters, kettles, irons etc - were severely damaged by fire.

"They're all reminders of how fires in the home that could have been much worse."
