The crews used a flexpack to extinguish the flames.

Then, later that evening, Eastbourne crews were sent to a home in St Agnes Road, following reports of a tumble dryer fire at about 8pm.

However, East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said the fire was out on arrival.

Crews used a thermal imaging camera to confirm that the fire was out, then carried out a home safety visit.
