Amazon offering hoverboard refunds

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Amazon is offering refunds to anyone who bought hoverboards on its website.

The move comes after growing concerns that the two-wheeled balance boards aren't safe and pose a fire hazard. 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating more than three dozen instances of hoverboards smoking or bursting into flames. Experts are also urging users to wear safety gear because of falls.

Despite the decision to offer refunds, Amazon still sells hoverboards on its site.
