A crystal doorknob started a devastating house fire in south London yesterday morning. London Fire Brigade says the sun’s rays refracted light from the knob onto a dressing gown which then caught fire.
Knob starts house fire! Yes, that's right, a glass doorknob refracted the suns rays & caused damage to a Clapham home http://t.co/Qv0cylXl3M
Charlie Pugsley from the Brigade’s fire investigation unit said:
“Crystal and glass ornaments and items such as shaving mirrors should be kept out of direct sunlight. The homeowners are lucky they had a working smoke alarm which alerted some local builders who quickly called the Brigade. Part of the bedroom was damaged but it could have been much worse.“
Earlier this year a crystal ball set light to curtains at a property in Romford.
