A big "boom". A battery for an e-cigarette caught fire in the room of a dwelling located in Lourdes a few days ago. But in this room, there was a girl of 4 years watching television.

In England, it is a professional golf player from Sheffield who makes the headlines. His "e-cigarette" would indeed exploded in his Audi A5 Sportback to the point of triggering a violent fire.

The aircraft subsequently fell out of his hand between the front seats of his German sedan. Will has slightly burned by the way out of his pocket. The violent explosion of the battery a few seconds later turned his Audi A5 Sportback into a blaze.
