Health Canada issues new notice about alcohol fire pots

Flame-jetting

Health Canada is out with a warning about alcohol fueled fire pots and it's asking the industry not to sell pots that use pourable fuels.

We told you over the summer about a number of deadly accidents after what's called, "flame-jetting."

It can happen when you try to refuel the burners while they're still lit or hot.

The fuel vapours can ignite as it's being poured and lead to a huge burst of flame.

Health Canada has issued a notice about these devices.

The agency says it's working with U.S. officials to develop new safety standards.

It's also suggesting you always use a flame arrestor when refilling the containers, or use non-refillable fuel canisters instead.
