CAUTION!!! Would like to share the cause.... yes, it was a dryer fire, however, the dryer had finished drying the clothes and shut off last night before the family members went to bed. The vent had been recently cleaned out...BUT the towels that were in the dryer retained their heat and smoldered in the dryer filling the house with heavy smoke.. the dryer did catch on fire once the dryer door was opened up. The family lost the dryer and its contents and they do have heavy smoke damage but that's it.. thank God ���� It could have been much worse... so, to those of us who DO clean out our dryers and DON'T fold our clothes as soon as the dryer stops, PLEASE TAKE NOTE... if you don't get to folding your clothes right away, at least open up the door and make sure they are not hot and overheated !!
