Incendiary photo evidence of a Dell laptop fire has thrown an extra log on the fire of Dell’s woes.
A Dell laptop’s battery caught on fire in a company’s IT department this week, burning a hole right through the casing. Nearby techs used fire extinguishers to put out the blaze. Employee Henrik took pictures to document the affair and uploaded them to the Toms Hardware message boards.
“The police department showed up. The entire lower floor was allowed to leave early and as we stood there in front of the building we simply couldn’t resist… we jokingly called the engineer a terrorist as he was being asked a few questions by the friendly officer,” writes Henrik.
Is that the smell of a recall wafting through the air?
