As the use of e-cigarettes has spread, so has the number of fires started by them. But while this has raised some concerns and generated some headlines, these incidents form a small proportion of fires overall, and the risk comes mostly from poor-quality and counterfeit batteries – hazards that could be eliminated with improved regulation and consumer education.
