Fire Risk - Plug-in Air Fresheners Print E-mail
This is one of those stories that if you didn't let everybody know about it, assuredly, someone on your life will suffer for not reading it.....

Some people learned a hard lesson.

Their house burned down...nothing left but ashes. 
They have good insurance, so the home will be replaced and most of the contents. 
That is the good news.

However, they were sick when they found out the cause of the fire.

The insurance investigator sifted through the ashes for several hours.
He had the cause of the fire traced to the master bathroom. 
He asked the lady of the house what she had plugged in in the bathroom.
She listed the normal things....curling iron, blow dryer. 
He kept saying to her, "No, this would be something that would disintegrate at high temperatures."

Then, the lady remembered she had a room freshener Plug-in in the
bathroom.

The investigator had one of those "Aha" moments.

He said that was the cause of the fire. 
He said he has seen more home fires started with the plug in type room fresheners than anything else.
He said the plastic they are made from is a THIN plastic. 
He said in every case there was nothing left to prove that it even existed.

When the investigator looked in the wall plug, the two prongs left from
the plug-in were still in there.

The lady had one of the plug-ins that had a small night light built in it.
She said she had noticed that the light would dim....and then finally go out. 
She would walk in a few hours later, and the light would be back on again.

The investigator said that the unit was getting too hot, and would dim
and go out rather than just blow the light bulb. 

Once it cooled down, it would come back on. 
That is a warning sign.

The investigator said he personally wouldn't have any type of plug in fragrance device anywhere in his house. 
He has seen too many burned down homes.

When you hear 'overcooked it', instead of food you think 'off the track'.
