Firefighters were called out to a home in Eastbourne after a television caught fire last night (November 12).

Two crews were sent to Stanmer Drive in Hampden Park at around 7.30pm.

The electrical fire was out when the crews arrived but firefighters quickly isolated the power supply and ventilated the property.

A spokesman for the fire service said the fire highlighted the importance of electrical safety and urged homeowners to check their appliances.

The spokesman said, “Electrical appliances, plugs and cables that are old or poorly wired can be a real danger.

“Just because there’s no flame does not mean there’s no fire risk.”
