Laundry fire at Wales care home
16 Mar 2012
Firefighters have tackled a blaze at a care home in Wales.
Four fire engines attended the scene at the Llys y Coed Care Centre in Llanelli on Wednesday evening.
They had to evacuate 37 people from the building after fire broke out in the laundry.
No-one was injured in the incident, and fire chiefs said it was down to the quick-thinking of those on the scene.
Mid and West Wales Fire Service investigators said the blaze started after a fault with a tumble drier.
Alan Sherman, fire station manager at the scene, said: "The rapid attendance and rapid actions of the crews contained the fire within the laundry room and extinguished the fire successfully."
