9 Volt Battery Fire Hazard

I had never stopped to consider the fire hazard that exists in my battery drawer until I saw this video about a house fire caused by a battery.

Any battery could cause a fire if a connection is made between the positive and negative terminals but because of the size and location of the terminals on a 9 Volt battery, it’s much easier for it to occur. To reduce the hazard simply place a piece of electrical tape over the end of the battery when storing or disposing of the battery. You might also like to see these Tips To Put Out A Kitchen Fire.
