Isle of Man house fire caused by multi-plug cable
A fire at a house in the Isle of Man was caused by a cable from a multi-plug adapter, the fire service has said.
The blaze at the property on Ballakermeen Drive in Douglas was brought under control on Sunday.
It is thought a chair was placed on the cable which then heated up and caught fire.
An Isle of Man fire and rescue service spokesman said: "Electrical appliances, plugs and cables that are old or poorly wired, can be a real danger."
He added: "If you think something needs fixing or changing, do it straight away."
