Fire breaks out in washing machine

Firefighters tackled a blaze which started in a faulty washing machine.

Crews from Brampton and Carlisle East were called to a property on the road between High Gelt Bridge and Castle Carrock at about 6.30am on Saturday.

The washing machine was well alight on arrival and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to put the fire out.

The property was then ventilated to clear the smoke. None of the occupants were hurt.

Of course it will. Any shift north is good

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
