I am looking for a data set that contains e-cigarette accidents where e-cigs have exploded and damage someone around (e.g., the vapers), with as many following fields as possible:

  • timestamp
  • geolocation
  • casualties and nature of casualties
  • model of e-cig

There are 4 incidents from 2015 in NEISS (National Electronic Injury Surveillance System), although using different search terms may give more results. See "Archived Data" links on the right of the page.
