Ring is recalling around 350,000 of its video doorbells following reports that they can catch on fire.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Ring has received 23 reports of fire involving its second-generation smart doorbells. At least eight people suffered minor burns, and property damage was also reported.

The CPSC says the doorbell battery can overheat if the incorrect screws are used for installation, posing fire and burn hazards.

The recalled doorbells were sold in the United States and Canada between June and October this year.
