Subject: Dryer Fire

I am a fire investigator for the Kansas City Kansas Fire Department. I recently ran a dryer fire that was the result of a malfunction of the dryer. I am attaching pictures. The drum of the dryer was rubbing against the front face and wore through to a point it rubbed the two wires leading to the door closed switch. The fire occurred when the owner opened the door and sparks caught a towel in the drum on fire. The dryer had not been used for about 12 hours. The owner reported the dryer had recently been turning off on its own.
