Description

After KIRO-TV produced this story, the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a nationwide recall of millions of oscillating fans. A fire investigator took an SMC brand oscillating fan to his lab, plugged it in, and let it run 8 hours per day for 5 days. During the fifth day, the fan burst into flames.
