E-Cig Believed To Have Started $150,000 Fire In Australia

427845427-19elgg4An electronic cigarette is believed to have sparked a fire in an apartment building in South Perth, Australia.  Presumably, a charging electronic cigarette was the source of the fire which caused roughly $150,000 in damages.

This has already led to further claims that electronic cigarettes are rather dangerous.  Opponents of the devices are pointing to the incident — which happened less than 2 days ago — as proof that e-cigs represent a serious danger beyond just the chemicals in them.

This is likely to be an incident that people point to for the next year or more when discussing electronic cigarettes with a bias against them.  This is, however, one incident involving no deaths compared to the 1,000 people a year in the US alone killed by fires started by conventional cigarettes.

This story is already being pushed around far more than it would were the fire to be started from any other source.  Electronic cigarettes are getting an undue amount of attention for anything that goes wrong with them.  This was a far bigger fire than the small scorch marks and thus far mostly contained fires sparked by other e-cigs.

Given that the electronic cigarette industry tipped more than $1.7 billion in the US last year, and has been growing rapidly worldwide, thus far, the number of incidents has been rather small.  This is going to be a stretching point for almost all anti-e-cig arguments.

    the web shall be much more useful than ever before.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she
    has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    share it with someone!

    Everything said was very reasonable. However, think about this, suppose you typed
    a catchier post title? I am not suggesting your information is not
    solid, however what if you added something that makes
    people desire more? I mean E-Cig Believed To Have Started $150,000 Fire In Australia –
    Electronic Cigarette News is kinda boring. You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they
    create article headlines to grab people interested.

    You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little
    bit more interesting.

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

    clear your thoughts before writing. I have had
    a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend
    to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
