Ceramic fire pot warning issued

When used incorrectly, the pots can explode into flames and three people are in hospitals struggling to survive.

The victims say when the fire seemed to go out, they added more fuel. That caused an explosion of the flaming gel they say stuck to their bodies like napalm.

Safety experts say this is a new type of hazard and are warning consumers to read instructions and follow them to the letter.
