My Hot Tools Straightener caught on fire. Model HTKIS1. I plugged it in as I normally do and immediately noticed smoke coming from the On/Off switch area. I attempted to flick the switch to the off position and saw flames coming from the area. I unplugged the straightener from the wall and took the straightener outside as to not burn down my entire house.
