Medford's fire department just put out a warning about electronic cigarettes, the "E-cigarettes" that are all over the news of late. 

MFD responded to two incidents in recent months in which the (theoretically) non-burning cigarettes started small fires when being charged. 

The fire marshal visits to talk about the causes, and possible prevention techniques.
