Toys R Us recalls Tonka trucks after one reportedly catches fire


SEATTLE, WA (NBC News) — A hot holiday toy may be to blame for a truck fire in Washington State, prompting a recall by Toys R Us.

Some grandparents scored the Tonka Truck from Toys R Us as a Christmas present for their grandson Friday night.

But as they were headed home, the truck apparently burst into flames.

Toys R Us apologized and issued a refund to the family, and has since issued a recall.

In a statement Toys R Us said:

Although this appears to be an isolated incident, out of an abundance of caution we are implementing a stop-sale and pulling the item from our stores and pending further investigation. In the meantime, we are working closely with Dynacraft, the manufacturer, to determine the cause.”
