Baker blames ‘faulty’ smart meter for huge blaze
A DOG bakery was destroyed in a massive blaze allegedly sparked by a poorly-fitted smart meter, it has been claimed.
Diane Murphy, 44, of Great Harwood-based Millie and Ruby’s, insists an engineer for E.ON failed to install the meter correctly – causing it to ‘overheat and burst into flames’.
