Samsung smart phone burned under teen’s pillow

Posted on Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at 6:19 pm    

A Samsung phone apparently overheated and caught fire under a teenager’s pillow while she was sleeping at her home in Texas, reported on July 26.

According to 13-year-old Ariel Tolfree, she woke up after she smelled “something burning” and found that her Samsung Galaxy S4, which was placed under her pillow, had burned. The girl’s father suspected that the fire was caused by a battery that overheated. The teen’s S4 was reportedly beyond recognition, as it was completely destroyed by fire. Though Samsung claimed that the battery that overheated under the pillow was not a Samsung product, they will conduct an investigation into the burned S4. Samsung also claimed that one of their devices has a warning in the user guide that says restricted airflow may occur if the device is covered by bedding. All the damages incurred from the burned S4 will be replaced by the mobile phone manufacturer.
