Laptop Computer Blamed in Fire

A Florida man says his laptop computer is to blame for a frightening fire.

David Costello and his daughter were traveling through Hillsborough County when a fire erupted in his truck. He believes his laptop computer is to blame.

Costello says he turned on his Dell computer so his daughter could watch a movie, but the unit began to smoke.

Costello lost control of his truck and plowed into a speed limit sign. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, but they could not determine if the laptop started the blaze.
