According to FENZ, the power tool battery was being charged overnight. This was considered the most likely cause of a garage fire as this was in the area determined to be the point of fire origin. The actual model of the branded tool could not be determined by FENZ when examining the fire remains. Attempts to obtain further information from the tool owner were unsuccessful.
With no further information available, WorkSafe Energy Safety closed this investigation.
