LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A hoverboard caught fire inside a crowded Texas mall, and shoppers captured the incident on camera.

It happened Dec. 28 at a kiosk that was selling the popular device. In the video, you can see a security guard using a fire extinguisher to put out the flames. 

No one was hurt, and the mall reports no serious property damage.

Mall management is now deciding whether to continue to allow the sale of hoverboards in the middle of the mall. 

This the latest in a series of reported problems with hoverboards catching fire.
