NAPLES – “An electrical explosion in Naples during the installation of a smart meter raises questions about the safety of the devices.
On Thursday morning, an FPL contractor was putting one of the devices in at the Naples Bay Resort when the incident happened.
"There was a severe arching and it ignited some combustible material in the room," said Larry Bacci, a City of Naples fire marshal.
