Samsung Galaxy Smartphone Sets Teen Girl’s Bed on Fire After Overheating

Talk about a wake-up call! A 13-year-old Texas girl awoke to find her bed: and pillow on fire after the battery in her Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone overheated.

She told KDFW she placed the phone under the pillow before she fell asleep. Later that night, she smelled something burning. ‘I didn’t think much of it, so I went back to sleep and then I woke up again and it was more prominent,’ Tolfree said.

Under her pillow, she discovered her phone charted and partially melted. Her sheets, mattress and pillow were also scorched. Her father said the phone must have overheated, causing the battery to swell and start a small fire.

Samsung insists it was a freak accident caused by the girl using a non-Samsung battery in the phone. But stuff like this is bound to become more common as more people become inseparable from their phones and laptops–to the point of actually sleeping with them.
