LOS ANGELES - (NBC) Hundreds of dollars went up in smoke when a hoverboard burst into flames last week in California.

The rider, Delvon Simmons, quickly jumped off and turned his camera on- showing the smoking, then flaming board in Los Angeles last week.


Simmons said he's had the hoverboard for a few months with no problems until the incident on Dec. 30.

He says it was recently charged but not overcharged.

That’s a $600 toy, gone in about a minute.
