RED WING, Minn. — Ferrin’s Furniture store in Red Wing, Minnesota caught fire recently. No one reported the fire to authorities. Instead, firefighters initially responded to an alarm sounding. Firefighters located smoke upon arrival at the store and changed the nature of the call from an alarm response to a structure fire according to an article appearing in the Republican-Eagle. Fire investigators from the Red Wing Fire Department along with fire consultants studied the fire and identified the source. The Red Wing Fire Marshal announced that the fire started when a dehumidifier located in the basement of the furniture store caught ignited. According to a follow-up report from the Republican-Eagle, the dehumidifier that started the blaze in the structure was recalled.
The Republican-Eagle identified the hazardous dehumidifier as a Soleus Air sold by Gree. Gree announced that it must recall several dehumidifiers because of a fire risk. Gree said that many of its dehumidifiers could possibly overheat, consequently igniting a blaze. The Fire Marshal for the Red Wing Fire Department and the recall announcement from Gree warned consumers to shut off the dehumidifiers immediately, unplug them from the wall, and stop using them.
Gree has an extensive recall campaign in place. Gree suggested to its customers that they could call the company, or they could visit the company’s fire recall webpage and ask the company for a full refund.
The recalled Gree dehumidifiers comprise many brand names. Among the brand names recalled are Frigidaire, Kenmore, Soleus Air, GE, and many more. The recalled appliances come in several colors including white, black, beige, or gray plastic, stand between 19 and 24 inches tall, are 13 to 15 inches wide, and 9 to 11 inches deep depending on the model. Customers seeking a refund will need to locate the model and date code, both of which may be found on a sticker affixed to the front, back, or side of the appliance.
