Yea it was a gas dryer. I caught it super early before the fire got really crazy

 

We don't have that many gas dryers here which is good because its crazy to have an open flame next to dryer lint. There's just a sheet metal tube thats open in the front and the flame in the middle. If you open up a gas dryer you would see lint on top the tube singed as well as every were else in the dryer. Its more difficult for an electric dryer to catch fire, there would need to be a spark from the motor or else where to start a fire. A gas dryer should not be used imo, they do preform better than electric and cost less to run but what good is it if it burns the house down.
