Recent home fire in Illinois Started in Clogged Dryer Vent - Dryer Vent Cleaning Expert Comments

Warren, MI (PressExposure) September 23, 2009 -- A group of linemen working to restore power to a neighborhood were in the right place at the right time when they noticed a home on fire. Workers grabbed fire extinguishers while others filled their hard hats with water to fight the flames until fire emergency crews arrived.

The fire was caused by a clogged dryer vent; flames caught the interior wall as the fire began to spread. Firefighters said that if it weren’t for what the linemen had done the results would have been devastating; the home lost.

Dayn Benson, franchise manager of Dryer Vent Wizard, headquartered in Warren Michigan, was recently interviewed. “Over 15,000 clothes dryer fires are reported each year,” said Benson. “The results are often devastating with deaths, injuries and loss of homes. Dryer vent cleaning is the number one preventer of dryer fires.”
