Dell Laptop Explodes at Yahoo

An employee who apparently did not heed the warning of Dell's laptop battery recall brought about a 45 minute recess for a couple hundred employees at Yahoo's Mission College campus after a notebook burst into flames. No injuries were reported in the incident, the aftermath of which was captured on camera.

The laptop fire at Yahoo is the latest in a series of high-profile cases that prompted both Dell and Apple to recall 5.9 million batteries, which were built by Sony and had a manufacturing problem that could lead them to overcharge and explode. Several airlines are now requiring customers to remove the batteries from their notebooks before flying.
