    Could be one of several reasons.

    If they had not been stored at the correct voltage, charged at too high C rating, discharged too far if used or they could just be faulty packs.

    What charge rate did you use?

    Did they get hot when charging?

    To be on the safe side, put them out of harms way outside of your home. It is possible they could rupture and puff out a load of nasty smoke, or catch fire.
