Grinder lights up carpet

By 24 January 2013 1

ACT Fire & Rescue has extinguished a small fire at a house on Appel Crescent, Fadden.

Fire started in the carpet from a grinder that had released sparks whilst workmen were in the lounge room of the four bedroom house.

Minimal damage.

Three fire pumpers, the Breathing Apparatus Van, the Hazardous Material Unit and a Command Officer on scene.

Crews are currently conducting ventilation operations and clearing smoke from the house.

ACT Fire & Rescue used a ladder to evacuate the two workmen from the balcony as the house was full of smoke.

ACT Ambulance Service intensive care paramedics were also on scene with no injuries reported.

Time of Emergency triple Zero (000) call 2.48pm.

Is no-one going to bait the trolls by making the leap from “grinder” to “Grindr” and the reference to carpet burns?
