Bournemouth Echo: 'Explosion' at home caused by smoking materials 'Explosion' at home caused by smoking materials

AN 'explosion' took place at a Corfe Mullen home on Tuesday night.

Fire crews from Wimborne and Poole attended a property in Diprose Road at 11pm where they discovered a blaze in an extension to the property had been put out.

The contents of the extension had been wrecked by fire.

At first it was thought the fire had been caused by discarded smoking materials but the owner of the property said fire investigators later believed the cause to be cleaning cloths that 'spontaneously combusted'.

Is one to assume that these 'smoking materials' were still smoking when they were discarded or were the materials stuff that could be used for smoking which spontaneously combusted?

Think the echo should probably get the facts correct before posting on the website, it was NOT caused by smoking materials and was in fact an electrical fault!!
