Energy Safety carried out an investigation on a fatality caused by a faulty electric blanket in a residential house. The outcome of investigations from the Fire Service showed the blanket was estimated to be over 40 years old and there were not sufficient identifiable markings to identify the product. No further details on the owner or property were able to be supplied, and the investigation was closed as there was insufficient information requiring further investigation.
