Man Killed by an Exploding E Cigarette
5th August 2014

Posted in >

A man in Merseyside was reported as having died when an e-cigarette caused oxygen equipment he was using at home to explode. A Merseyside Fire Brigade spokesman told reporters:

...a subsequent fire investigation identified that an e-cigarette that had been charging in the bedroom exploded, caught fire and ignited the oxygen tube of an oxygen concentrator, which may have been in use by the occupier. The investigation into the cause of this fire is continuing but at this stage it is thought that the charging device being used at the time may not have been the one supplied with the e-cigarette.
