I was lucky to have been alerted to this mishap from the barking of my dogs.
The scene of fire, like in a furnace, black smoke and the unpleasant smell was quite scary.
All I could do was to disconnect the power point which by the way did trip the whole house and wait for it to cool.
Hoping that it will not explode.
So never ever leave the dryer unattended or worst leaving it on when there's no one home.
Although there's a timer, it all happened 5 mins before times up.
