What’s the Problem?
June 20, 2017 – The hoverboard fire broke out Saturday about 1 p.m. at a home on the 500 block of C Avenue, according to FOX 5 San Diego.
Coronado Fire Department Battalion Chief Perry Peake said the hoverboard was being charged in a bedroom near the front of the house when the fire sparked.
Firefighters were able to contain the blaze in the one bedroom; however, smoke and soot damage was present throughout the house.
“I’ve seen several reports of hoverboard fires and I’ve responded to a couple of them, so apparently there’s something that needs to be done on a recall,” Peake said.
The residents of the home may be displaced until the smoke and soot damage can be repaired.
The fire caused about $22,500 in damage to the home. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
