My son-in-law bought a 4 gallon Rigid wet dry vac. He cleaned the carpet in his truck and sucked out the water with his wet dry vac. He then unplugged it and left it in the garage. Later that same afternoon the wet dry vac caught fire and nearly burned the garage down. The fire department said that the water and cleaning product became combustable inside the wet dry vac and caused the fire. Shouldn't there be some kind of vent hole to prevent this from happening? My son-in-law and daughter are a young army couple and are struggling just to make ends meet and now they are going to have to pay for damage due to this fire that could have been prevented had there been an air hole to allow air to circulate. He will never buy a Rigid tool again.
