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 Toysrus.com pending further investigation. In the meantime, we are working closely with Dynacraft, the manufacturer, to determine the cause.”
