Dog starts house fire by turning on microwave

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A dog started a house fire when it managed to turn the microwave on, a fire service said.

The husky-type animal, which was left on its own in the house in Stanford-le-Hope, turned on the appliance, which was on a worktop in the kitchen.

A packet of bread rolls, which had been placed inside, began to burn and caused a small fire, Essex Fire Service said.

The owner, who was not at home at the time, was alerted to the fire by an app on their mobile phone.

The dog was not hurt, the service added.

Thank the Universe for that. :yes:

I keep stuff in the microwave so the dogs can't get to it, but they are not young anymore so don't jump up to the counter.  That dog was probably trying to open the microwave door.  Huskys are smart.

My microwave has always been a "bread box" too. Especially in my camper.

This is why I'm a cat person. A cat would never set your house on fire-- by accident.
