A couple lost their 25 year old son in a fire at home on June 4th. The son who had graduated with MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison two weeks earlier had come home for a while. He had lunch with his dad at home and decided to go back to clean up his hostel room. His father told him to wait, to meet his mother, before he went back for a few days. He decided to take a nap while waiting for his mom to come back home from work. Some time later their neighbors called 911 when they saw black smoke coming out of the house. 

Unfortunately, the 25 years old died in the three year old house. It took several days of investigation to find out the cause of the fire. It was determined that the fire was caused by the laptop resting on the bed. When the laptop was on the bed cooling fan did not get the air to cool the computer and that is what caused the fire. He did not even wake up to get out of the bed because he died of breathing in carbon monoxide.

The reason I am writing this to all of you is that I have seen many of us using the laptop while in bed. Let us all decide and make it a practice not to do that. The risk is real. Let us make it a rule not to use the laptop on bed with blankets and pillows around. Please educate as many people as you can.

@Mushtaq Hussain

You called it a reality still you could not answer the questions I have raised in my previous comment. Assertions are meaningless unless corroborated with acceptable reasons.

The alleged occurrence has no direct evidence associated with it nor there is any reference of any circumstantial evidence on the basis of which, one could agree with the reported conclusion. What was the name of the neighbour who called 911? Where was the house of the victim located? Most importantly, for the reasons recorded in my previous comment, the story itself does not appeal to a prudent mind. Still you think its a reality?

Its a reality and can't be rejected. Everything is possible in this universe, so we must take care of these calamities occur by our carelessness. Thanx for sharing such life saving information.

Unbelievable. I got a question for the poster. "If your bed accidentally gets fire while you are asleep on it, would you die of carbon monoxide before burning heat or smoke gathering in your room wakes you up?".

Besides, laptops automatically get shut down when they get overheated. How come a laptop getting so hot that its batteries, microchips or motherboard almost explode to cause the fire and that fire starts frying up the bed but not the victim sleeping on it, who could not wake up even when the smoke and the heat were clouding around him, simply because carbon monoxide took him down before the smoke/heat could wake him up? May be he was sleeping on coal and his laptop had such a poor design that it simply exploded to solve the heat issue. Well, I guess I need not worry about it as long as my bed is not made of coal.
