Dryer fire damages Farmington home
Laundry is one of those pretty mundane tasks that everyone ends up doing sooner or later. But for one Farmington resident, doing laundry wasn't so boring Wednesday.
Just before 3 p.m. Tuesday, Farmington firefighters responded to the report of a basement fire on the 18100 block of Echo Terrace. According to Farmington fire marshal John Powers, the fire started in the dryer, then extended into the wall cavity behind the dryer.
