Tonka truck pulled from shelves after fire

A Bellingham family bought a Tonka truck that caught on fire while they were traveling back home.

Toys R Us is pulling a toy off the shelves after a scary situation for a Bellingham family.

The Hardens bought a Tonka truck from Toys R Us as a Christmas present for the grandson Friday night. On the drive home, they say it ignited in flames.

They stopped at a rest area to put out the fire, but when they drove back to Toys R Us to return the toy, it burst into flames again and set their truck on fire.

"The firefighter ... doused the truck with water and I'm, I still can't believe it, we almost shut I-5 down, and it was just a toy for our grandson, who would have known," says Delmond Harden.

The family says Toys R Us apologized and will give them a refund.

The company responded with this statement:

"Although this appears to be an isolated incident, out of an abundance of caution we are implementing a stop-sale and pulling the item from our stores and pending further investigation. In the meantime, we are working closely with Dynacraft, the manufacturer, to determine the cause."
