It was blue and approximately 10 inches long. I have several pictures of it after it exploded but so far I don’t see a place to attach them .

We were barbecuing and a brand new Scripto Lighter was sitting about 2 feet away from the grill in a dish when suddenly exploded! It broke into bits and looked like it had melted and felt very hot when we picked it up. It sounded like someone was popping the cork on a champagne bottle when it happened. If someone had been standing closer it definitely could have severely injured them!
