The product was brand new out of the box and was then plugged directly into the wall outlet in my room away from any flammable surfaces. It was placed on the concrete floor. It had been running for about 45 minutes on the high heat setting. I was leaving the room, so I turned the dial to off and left. Within minutes the heater had started on fire. Thankfully someone noticed and called the fire department. The flames were put out before the fire department arrived, however there was quite a bit of smoke from the heater completely being on fire and melting.
