Halifax fire crews were called to a fire at a beauty therapist salon, this afternoon.
Two pumps attended Shaw Lodge House, Shaw Lane, after a faulty hand-drier caught fire.
The son of the beauty therapist went to the toilet, noticed the blaze and the fire brigade was then called.
A Halifax firefighter said if the room had not been so well insulated the whole Victorian building could have gone up in flames.
No one was injured.
