Dog Left Alone Accidentally Turns on Microwave, Nearly Burns Down Home

A husky dog in the U.K. caused a house fire after turning on a microwave.

The pooch switched on the appliance while it was on a worktop at the home in Stanford-Le-Hope in South-East England.

According to the Essex Fire Service, a packet of bread rolls that were inside the microwave then caught fire, causing a small blaze.

The owner of the home was not in at the time, but spotted smoke emitting from the kitchen using a camera feed on his phone.
