SEATTLE, Wa. -- Toys "R" Us is pulling a toy off the shelves after a scary situation for a Bellingham, Wa., family.

The Hardens bought a Tonka truck from Toys "R" Us as a Christmas present for the grandson Friday night. On the drive home, they say it ignited in flames.

They stopped at a rest area to put out the fire, but when they drove back to Toys R Us to return the toy, it burst into flames again and set their truck on fire.

"The firefighter ... doused the truck with water and I'm, I still can't believe it, we almost shut I-5 down, and it was just a toy for our grandson, who would have known," says Delmond Harden.

The family says Toys "R" Us apologized and will give them a refund.

The company responded with this statement today:

"Although this appears to be an isolated incident, out of an abundance of caution we are implementing a stop-sale and pulling the item from our stores and Toysrus.com pending further investigation. In the meantime, we are working closely with Dynacraft, the manufacturer, to determine the cause."

The Harden family says a toy Tonka truck caught on fire Friday night, damaging their pickup truck.
