and we thought that electricity was safe??

A power surge after a cable fault led to a number of house fires in a North Lanarkshire town.

About 400 houses were affected by the surge which caused some electricity meters and fuses to blow in the Summerlee area of Coatbridge.

With modern wiring, good fuses, trip switches and anti surge devises and such things we are rather apt to take electricity and it`s safe use too much for granted.

I can`t be bothered to look for the statistics but a lot of fires in homes are caused by electrical faults. I remember my grandmother was always petrified of anything electrical.
