The Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a second warning to people using certain hoverboards because of a fire hazard.
The CPSC recommends people with LayZ Board self-balancing scooters stop using them immediately.
- Hoverboard suspected in fire that damaged 6 townhomes
- 2nd child, 10, dies in fire linked to hoverboard
A second house fire is now connected to the scooters and their Lithium Ion battery. One townhome was destroyed and four others damaged in a fire in York County, Pennsylvania.
The CPSC issued its first warning in May after a deadly house fire in Harrisburg that killed two young girls.
- Shootings at multiple Calif. sites kill 3, wound kids at school
- Police: Baby alone for hours after couple killed in home
- Baby beaten to death in Mt. Lebanon, father arrested
- RAW VIDEO: Fetterman announces run for lieutenant governor
Anyone who owns one of these hoverboards is urged to stop charging it and stop using it.
Consumers should take them to a recycling center that is equipped to handle lithium-ion batteries.
Any incidents can be reported to the CPSC at www.saferproducts.gov.
Note from the CPSC: The safety warning to stop use applies to LayZ Board hoverboards, which is a different product from Lazyboard hoverboards.
