Dog starts house fire in Essex by turning on microwave

The husky-type animal, which was left on its own in the house in Stanford-le-Hope, turned on the appliance, which was on a worktop in the kitchen.

Fancied toast, I guess.

My son's Jack Russell managed to turn the TV on and put it on Netflix- a 2 button operation.

Poor dog - presumably it was trying to get at the buns which then became inticingly illuminated/turning around, eventually catching fire.

My SiL's Springer (Spaniel not Jerry) once turned the gas on on her oven while she was at the shops.

'a husky type animal'

With a helpful photo of a husky. God bless the BBC and their 'mission to inform'.

Seeing it’s a dog, I suppose writing a manual is out of the question.

Our greyhound turned the gas on reaching for something (cold) left on top of the stove. Disaster was averted but you really have to watch her- she can get things from the back of a worktop.

Fucking idiot, I've put the microwave on loads of times and not had one fire

I had to explain to my ex how the dog had turned on the computer and clicked on to PornHub.

.....and you don't even have a dog.

My twins (not sure which one so they're both getting the blame) managed to turn on our microwave.

In the time it took Mrs Rept (I wasn't home) to get from the lounge to the kitchen, the microwave had caught fire.

I came home to find it blackened and in the garden.

The microwave, not the wife.

Lost consonants: The dog decided some rolls needed baking.

Maybe it put the cat in the microwave.
