WASHINGTON, DC - The Federal Aviation Administration says they want passengers to keep e-cigarettes out of checked baggage.
They say the devices are a fire hazard in the plane's cargo compartment.

FAA reports several incidents where the heating element in e-cigarettes have accidentally activated and either overheated or caught fire. They recommends passengers carry e-cigs in their carry-on baggage.

That way, overheating or fire can be seen and snuffed out quickly.
