Idaho Witnesses First E-Cigarette Explosion As E-Cig Lawsuit Cases Continue To Be Filed reports on a news story by Local News 8 about an April 13th explosion of an e-cigarette that sent a local Idaho Falls, Idaho man to the hospital to be treated for 3rd-degree burns. The man's e-cig exploded in his pocket and proceeded to emit white flames causing the burns to his body. The victim stated that he started using e-cigs because he thought they were safer than regular cigarettes which he had smoked for 12 years. It is reported that after the incident he stated that he wished he had never started using the e-cig that sent him to the hospital. This is the first e-cig explosion to happen in the state of Idaho.

Attorney Marc Freund of Lipsig, Shapey, Manus, & Moverman commented on the Idaho explosion. He is hopeful that the victim will make a full and complete recovery from his injuries. Freund also believes that as the popularity of e-cig use increases the number of explosions will increase as well.
