White goods appliances



Request detail: 

I am writing to request information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 can I ask for the following information:

1)How many fires have occurred in your county or equivalent operational area during the financial year 14/15, 15/16 and 16/17 which were caused/you believed to have been caused by white goods appliances e.g. washing machine, dishwasher, tumble drier etc? Can I have the figures broken down by year.

2)Please provide a breakdown stating the make and model of the white goods appliance involved in each fire and please also indicate if any loss of life occurred in relation to that fire. I do not require this year by year - just the total amounts of a) make and models and b) deaths for the three year period.

I should prefer to receive these in electronic format at this email address.

It would be helpful if you were to provide any brief notes which might be necessary to understand the context of the information provided, although I recognise that you are not obliged to do this.

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please find attached a spreadsheet containing the data requested for the financial years 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17. Please note that the make and model of the appliance is stated only when it was recorded.
