Mara McInerney, the woman in question, was out shopping at the Sunglass Hut at the Freehold Raceway Mall when suddenly her vape exploded and as you can see in the video above, thick, black smoke started to pour out of her bag. According to McInerney, “Terrifying, scary. It sounded like a gunshot. It sounded like a bomb went off. It was 9/11. I thought someone had put something in my bag.”
