Samsung Phone Fire - Why You Should Never Sleep With Phones Under Your Pillow

Posted in: , , ,

A 13-year-old North Texas girl was awoken in the night by a smoldering cell phone under her pillow after she put it in there before she fell asleep.

Ariel Tolfree said; “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’s dad believes the phone overheated, causing the battery to swell and ignite a small fire.

Reacting, the cell phone manufacturer (a Samsung S4) says she did something they warn users about, never put your phone in a place where it might not get enough air!
