New Mattress Could Slow Cigarette Fires in Bed

Normally, if a cigarette or candle catches the bed on fire, it could become engulfed in flames in less than three minutes. That's why Serta is incorporating fire blocker technology in some of its new mattresses this year.

Instead of a quick burst of flames, a special blend of fibers near the surface of the mattress dramatically slows the spread of fire. This barrier-like system gives you at least a half hour to get up and out.
