A damaged Sony Vaio laptopLooks like Dell is not the only one having the flaming laptop problem after all. Sony’s laptop has just burst into flames too. According to TheKansasCityChannel,

The laptop was turned off but left charging at the time of the incident. The first time it burst into flames, it was quickly put out by the owner’s fire extinguisher. However, it was on fire for a second time, a couple of minutes later. Nevertheless, the owner managed to extinguish the fire on the driveway shortly before the arrival of the firemen. The only damage to the house was a smudge on the wall and fire extinguisher dust on the furniture. Nobody was hurt in this incident.
