Still rocking Nintendo’s Wii console? Check this out. A report out of Colorado tells the tale of a man who claims that his Nintendo Wii burnt all of his belongings. The man lives in his RV and he says that the fire caused by his console burnt down everything he owns, including the RV itself.
Apparently he had powered down the console but it was plugged in, there’s nothing unusual with that. Everybody does that. The Wii can be seen in the picture.
Trevor Pellegrin says that he was told by fire investigators that they were “99 percent sure” that the fire was caused by the console. I think this is the first case of a Wii fire that I have heard of. Insurance adjusters plan to do an X-ray on the console to determine if it really caused the fire. Makes you a little worried to have a Wii around huh?
Pellegrin says that he was using the Wii to stream Netflix and he powered it off before leaving the RV to head to a meeting. When he returned he found his house on fire along with everything inside. A spokesperson from the fire department told the news outlet that they have ruled out “all other possible sources of ignition.” So far there has been no response from Nintendo, naturally.
