This Woman’s Death May Confirm All Your Suspicions About Smart Meters | Off The Grid News.

Smart meters may be linked to a series of house fires and one death in two Nevada communities, and the fire smart-meter-death-minicassiavoice-400x260smart-meters-fire-usa-today-400x300chiefs of the towns have asked the state Public Utilities Commission to launch an investigation, which it is doing.

Reno, Nevada Fire Chief Michael Hernandez and Sparks, Nevada, Fire Chief Tom Garrison say they know of nine fires which could have been caused by smart meters. A 61-year-old woman was fatally burned in one of them, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported.

Concern is Widespread

“Yes, it’s a small number, but as fire chief, when I start to see a pattern, it gets my attention,” Hernandez said of the smart meters. “That’s why we are red-flagging this and reporting it to the proper people who regulate this kind of thing.”

The chiefs are suspicious of the meters because in seven of the fires only the meter itself and the surrounding wall was destroyed.

Another incident in Reno also points to smart meters as the cause. There, a smart meter burst into flames when a man flipped a breaker switch. His face was burned but he was able to douse the blaze with a fire extinguisher.  A North Carolina company, Sensus, makes the meters in question.
