Dishwasher Causes $25k Fire In Adelaide Hills

Melted Dishwasher 4780894129

Dodgy wiring in a dishwasher has caused $25,000 damage to an Adelaide Hills home.

Fire crews from Nairne were on scene within 10 minutes after a call from a woman in Dawesley informed them a fire had broken out in her kitchen just before 11am yesterday (Tuesday February 16). They managed to get the flames under control and no one was injured.

Investigators say an electrical fault is to blame.
