A woman lost everything when a fire broke out in her flat in Birmingham due to an electronic cigarette.
Keeley Cooper, from Shard End, said she heard a bang and saw a flash as the e-cigarette was being charged while her sons were asleep in bed.
She is still in temporary accommodation six months on.
Last October, a 68-year-old woman died in Chesterfield after a fire in her room which was linked to an e-cigarette battery overheating.
Fire officers are calling for safety messages to be displayed on electronic cigarettes after a growing number of accidents involving the devices.
Figures show e-cigarettes were involved in more than 100 incidents in less than two years.
