OKLAHOMA CITY – Firefighters say a hoverboard may be to blame for a fire that sparked inside an Oklahoma City home.
On Thursday morning, authorities were called to the 1100 block of Carter Dr. on a possible house fire.
When fire crews made their way inside the home, they found that the fire had already been extinguished.
Investigators saw heavy char on one interior wall and a badly damaged hoverboard.
A witness inside the home said he heard what sounded like fireworks and saw “pieces of fire shooting across the room.”
Firefighters say a battery from the hoverboard was found in another room on a mattress, where it had burned a hole in the foam.
Oklahoma City firefighters say this is the first time they have responded to a fire involving a hoverboard.
At the time of the fire, crews say the hoverboard was charging.
