Firefighters tackle e-cigarette blaze

Firefighters were called to a house in Perrycroft in Windsor on Friday night to tackle a fire started by a charging e-cigarette.

A crew from Windsor Fire Station and another from Slough were called to the scene at about 8pm and were there for about an hour.

Firefighters said three people were treated for smoke inhalation and that there was smoke damage in the house.

A bit of a bed in the house was also partly burned by the blaze.

It is not known exactly what caused the vape to set alight but it was on charge at the time of the emergency.

    Fires can start with any type of electronic device, in my online Shopify vape shop -VapeZone247- I have tons of products that can be safely charged away from combustable things. Its more like people being more aware of this type of danger that should be the true problem.
