Last night my wife was vacuuming the upstairs hallway carpets when the sweeper caught fire. Hearing her screams, I came out of the bedroom and saw the sweeper on fire with flames coming from underneath the sweeper. I told my wife to pull the plug from the wall outlet and the flames subsided. I blew out the remaining fire. Damage was limited to the sweeper itself but did produce enough smoke to set off the smoke detectors in our house. My wife was visibly shaken by this incident.
