Tumble dryer sparks house fire
Dave Jobson, watch commander at Hunslet Fire Station, said the dryer was in the cellar when it caught fire.
He said: “The family were upstairs at the time but were alerted by smoke detectors and made their way outside.
“If they hadn’t got any smoke alarms this could have been a very different situation and we would encourage everyone to have working alarms in their homes.”
