NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Firefighters are urging customers to use caution when thinking about buying a hoverboard.

Authorities with the Nashville Fire Department say a blaze that destroyed a $1 million home was caused by a hoverboard.

Two teenagers and their father were injured in the fire.

After an investigation, officials determined the blaze was caused by a FITURBO F1 hoverboard, which was purchased from Amazon.

Last month, Amazon announced that it is now offering full refunds on any hoverboards sold on the site, including in the U.S. and Canada.

The refunds are a response to the rash of firesand falls that have plagued the popular two-wheeled balance boards.
