Just read an interesting albeit brief story on a fire in Bristol.
Looks as if the DNO cut out caught fire.
its rare for a cut out to go up,more likely a loose wire on one of the tails to or from meter.
looking at the images the incoming supply has been cut back and nothing is left.
i like the advice they give to maintain the cut out but officially not to do it yourself!

edit no smart meter fitted! they have now added the other image of a old style meter. thoughts on cause?
