An LG laptop computer has reportedly burst into flames while being operated by a South Korean journalist. 

LG Electronics is investigating the incident in conjunction with battery manufacturer LG Chem.
The company has taken possession of the computer and is working with independent third parties to determine the cause of the malfunction.
Earlier rumours that an LG cell phone had killed a worker were debunked when a co-worker admitted accidentally causing his death by hitting him with an excavator.
