EAST YORKS: Humberside Fire and Rescue is urging residents to make basic electrical checks to make sure their household is safe.
It is part of Electrical Fire Safety Week which runs from September 24 to September 30.
About 70 people die and 350,000 are seriously injured in the UK each year each year due to electrical related incidents.
Fire officers say could easily be avoided if people made simple checks, for little or no cost, to identify and rectify possible dangers.
Phil Leake, community safety manager for Humberside Fire and Rescue, said: "In the past 12 months, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service has attended 299 electrical related fires.
"Turning off and unplugging appliances when they are not in use is one way to reduce the risk of fire in the home, especially before going to bed.
"If anyone is doubt about how safe their appliances are they should have them checked by an appropriately qualified person."
