Rooftop solar panels at some houses in Roseville, Calif., are bursting into flames as the panels fail to withstand the heat and cause wires inside to burn. The OE-34 solar panels used on the roofs are similar to solar panels resembling roofing shingles, which were recalled by Suntech America in 2011. The builder of the affected houses agreed to replace the solar devices with a raised solar panel, but some residents are skeptical about the offer.
