Holy smokes! Quick-thinking TSA agent grabs smoking bag


(AP) — Holy smokes!

A quick-thinking Transportation Security Officer jumped into action when a bag started to spontaneously combust on the x-ray belt in Savannah, South Carolina.

On surveillance video, TSA Lead Officer Darrell Wade is seen grabbing a smoking bag from the security area at the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport and move it to a safe area away from people.  

Officers at the checkpoint notified local law enforcement officers, who immediately responded and found that the item was a malfunctioning vape battery.
