A family of 10 was killed yesterday, including three children, in a catastrophic house fire in Pennsylvania during the early morning hours. Neighbors who witnessed the tragedy, described seeing flames on the front porch after hearing loud popping sounds. 
In a 2013 article titled, “When smart meters cause fires and kill,” popping sounds can indicate possible electrical problems linked to smart meters:
“According to electrical engineers, the popping, humming, and appliance damage are all telltale signs of an electrical problem caused by arcing, possibly from a meter that was not installed properly. Arcing can lead to fires and explosions.”
The fact that smart meters are a fire hazard is well known. What is less well known, is that smart meters commonly lack a “UL” code, which means they may not meet electrical safety standards.
Smart meters, like cell towers can malfunction and cause horrific fires, property damage and death. Other problems such as inaccurate readings, health hazards, and unwarranted surveillance capabilities underscore the need to immediately begin replacing these dangerous products with safe and reliable analogue meters.
