My 12 year old daughter woke to her Holmes fan in flames at 4am and quickly threw a blanket over it to stop the fire, she suffered second degree burns to her right hand where the plastic had melted to her. We all woke to the smoke detectors going off and found out what happened. We took her to the ER. The fan was properly plugged in and there was nothing near it, it was used nightly for white noise. Turned on around 9 pm. The outlets were unharmed, cord was unharmed, the fan was melted flat.
