A West Chester-based company will pay a $500,000 fine over fires and other problems caused by its defective fans.
The problem led to nine injuries and property damage.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says Lasko received 42 related complaints from 2002 through 2005. The company did not fully report the problems until September 2005.
The fans were recalled in 2006.
Lasko denies that it knowingly violated the law.
