A garage and conservatory were damaged in a fire in a Peterborough street.
The fire started in Hedgelands, Werrington at 8.15pm last night (Thursday).
A fire had started near to an electrical appliance, which was stored closely to a fence. The fire spread to the fence, then to a garage and a conservatory.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels to extinguish the fire.
The cause of the fire was accidental. Crews returned to their stations by 10.05pm.
Watch Commander Mark Hodges said: “We would like to remind residents to think about where they store electrical appliances. It’s advised that any large electrical household appliance, from fridge freezers to tumble dryers, is stored a suitable distance away from fences and vegetation.”
