Electrical fire safety advice
If there is an electrical fire, pull the plug out, or switch off the
power at the fuse box - if it's safe to do so. Sometimes this can stop
the fire immediately.
Never use water on an electrical fire, and don't take any risks with your safety - get out, stay out and call 999.
