Four fire engines and over 20 firefighters were called to a fire in Barking, East London, Saturday and rescued a woman from a ground floor apartment. The woman was suffering from smoke inhalation and shock.

The blaze was believed to have started after an incompatible charger was used on an e cigarette an electronic inhaler usually containing nicotine that acts as a substitute for tobacco.

While the LFB Fire Investigation Team said it was the first fire it had seen involving an e cigarette, it did state that there was an incident in Manchester recently where a female pensioner was burnt after lighting an e cigarette while attached to an oxygen cylinder in hospital.

E cigarettes are rising in popularity on both sides of the Atlantic. Recently, analyst Bonnie Herzog of Wells Fargo Securities said “conservative data” already indicated that sales of e cigarettes this year have already reached $700 million from traditional retail outlets like convenience stores in the U.S. They predicted that sales in the U.S. would reach $1.7 billion this year.
