WATCH: Man's e-cig explodes on bus ride

Posted at 4:56 PM, Dec 22, 2016

A bus driver was caught on camera telling a passenger on board that he couldn't use his e-cigarette while on the bus.

Maybe he should have listened.

Minutes later the e-cig burst into flames. The 53-year-old passenger says the battery-powered device suddenly got really hot and then exploded.

He was burned on his hand and thigh but is expected to recover.
