Dublin Fire Brigade has issued a warning after attending a washing machine fire in the capital yesterday. 

"Occasionally washing machines/dryers/dishwashers develop faults," they wrote on Twitter. 

"Avoid turning them on and leaving the house or going to bed. A smoke alarm should give you an early warning if things are going wrong."

Just last week the emergency service issued a warning about placing toys near sources of heat - specifically Elf on the Shelf.
