Reporting electrical incidents to HSE

In what cases do I need to report an electrical incident to the HSE? Does this apply to small fires for example, even if they are put out right away?

"Is the cable burnt or the appliance? An electrician can't be responsible for faulty appliances

If cable is burnt that indicates the cable was undersized"
