Careful Where You Charge Your Devices, Warns Fire Service, As Mattress Goes Up In Smoke

No Injuries Reported

A warning from the Thunder Bay Fire and Rescue Service, after a mattress was burnt to a crisp.

Nothing was left but the springs, after the Fire Service says a tablet was left charging on a bed. Very dangerous, says the service, as heat can build up and have no where to dissipate, charger heats up further, and in this case, ignited the mattress.

No one was hurt, but you are reminded to be aware of where you’re plugging your stuff in to charge.
