A Splendora man was severely injured after his e-cigarette exploded in his pants pocket, according to FOX News. 22-year-old Ray Emanus was driving at the time that the battery in his e-cigarette vaporizer exploded, which not only set his pants on fire but also his rental car. Luckily, Emanus was with co-workers at the time of the accident and was taken to a hospital immediately for treatment of his burns. For now, he says he is undecided about whether to pursue a lawsuit. This is one of several explosions involving e-cigarettes, and the U.S. Fire Administration has studied over two-dozen similar cases.
