Dishwasher warning after Wareham house fire

There have been fresh warnings about a batch of Bosch dishwashers after a Wareham family had to flee from their home when their machine caught light.

Firefighters say tragedy was averted because the family had working smoke alarms.

It is the sixth fire in Dorset involving a dishwasher in recent months.

Bosch says that people with dishwashers bought before 2006 should contact them to find out if their machine needs modifications.
