I've seen hundreds of dryer fires. Every one I've seen, it filled the dryer with smoke and choked itself out.  Some of them, the customer didn't even know there was a fire until I showed them the charred lint. Most of them didn't need any service other than cleaning out the lint.  Some of them needed burnt wiring replaced.
On every dryer service call, I disassemble and clean out the lint. And I brush out the vent, too, if it needs it.

should also check the HI / LOW "trigger" temperatures at the Vent, as near to the Dryer, running an empty load.

Clean the lint build up from your dryer and vent.
