House Fires Often Caused by Dryers


An Abilene home was destroyed by fire yesterday when the electrical wiring that a dryer was hooked up to sparked.

Appliance repairmen say it could have just as easily been the dryer, as they are one of the leading causes of house fires in the country.

A repairman we spoke to says a good indication that you do not have proper ventilation from your dryer is lint collecting on the walls.
