When smoking you have to be sure to follow safety procedures to prevent fires. Did you know that electronic cigarettes can cause fires? According to the NFPA website (see source link below):
“Fires have occurred while e-cigarettes were being used, the battery was being charged, or the device was being transported. Battery failures have led to small explosions. Never leave charging e-cigarettes unattended. E-cigarettes should be used with caution.”
“The risk of dying in a home structure fire caused by smoking materials rises with age. One out of four fatal victims of smoking-material fires is not the smoker whose cigarette started the fire.”
