My Fox 28 Columbus Spot - Prevent a Dryer Fire in Your Home

October is national fire prevention month and one appliance you need to consider is your clothes dryer! There are 15,500 dryer fires a year, resulting in 34 deaths, 430 injuries, and $309 million in property loss. Through regular dryer use, highly flammable lint collects in the dryer and throughout the dryer vent line. As the vent system becomes clogged, heat from the dryer can ignite the lint. Watch the video to learn what you can do to prevent a dryer fire in your own home.
