Wall mounted electric fireplace purchased around November 2011.

Wednesday 04/24/2013 Caller's 18 month old electric fireplace was mounted on the wall, plugged in but not turned on.

Warnings on instructions state "Do not leave plugged in when not in use".

Caller's were out and came home around 8:00PM to find that the glass on the front of their fireplace that had obviously exploded.

The nearest pieces of glass were directly in front of the fireplace to as far away as 6 to 8 feet out from the unit with a radius of approximately 7 feet.

No one was injured

Caller's contacted the trading company/manufacturer on April 25th, 2013 and have commented that they were very responsive; first offering to send another fireplace but then when the caller declined then the Trading Company offered to send packaging supplies to have the caller return the unit to them.
