Smoking Fire in Otay Mesa?

3/8/2022 (Permalink)

E-cigarette paraphernalia sits on a table. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

Do you know that e-cigarette explosion and burn injuries are common occurrences? SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro offers these smoking safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:

Electronic Cigarettes

Never leave charging e-cigarettes unattended. E-cigarettes should be used with caution.

  • Fires have occurred while e-cigarettes were being used
  • While the battery was being charged
  • While the device was being transported
  • Battery failures have led to small explosions

Smoking Safety

  • If you smoke, use only fire-safe cigarettes
  • If you smoke, smoke outside. Most deaths result from fires that started in living rooms, family rooms, and dens or in bedrooms.
  • Keep cigarettes, lighters, matches, and other smoking materials up high out of the reach of children, in a locked cabinet

Put It Out

  • Use a deep, sturdy ashtray. Place it away from anything that can burn.
  • Do not discard cigarettes in vegetation such as mulch, potted plants or landscaping, peat moss, dried grasses, leaves, or other things that could ignite easily
  • Before you throw away butts and ashes, make sure they are out, and dousing in water or sand is the best way to do that
