Would you believe that a 9-volt batter could start a house fire? Well it did for one unlucky family and we are here to show you the video and cause(s) of just how simply changing your battery(s) in your smoke detector(s) could start a fire in your very own home.
We trust everyone one of you changes your batteries every year at daylight savings time – right? Just nod your head “Yes, we sure do!” and if you haven’t, go change them right now.
Essentially what has happened here is two 9-volt batteries were discarded into a recycle trash bag and 2-weeks later the two 9-volt battery terminals touched each other after he inadvertently moved the recycle bags.
