T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S5 allegedly catches on fire; check out the evidence
In panic mode, Jjhend poured a glass of water on the fire, which is the worst thing to add to a fire started by a lithium cell. Baking soda or a class D type fire extinguisher is usually recommended. The usual suspects, like a third party battery or charger, were not involved. And the blinds in the house were shut, eliminating the heat from the sun as a possible cause of the fire.
Jjhend did not have a warranty on the phone, which isn't all paid for as we previously mentioned. One question that is bound to come up in any investigation is one of timing. Most people bring their handsets with them whenever and wherever they go. That is the point of owning a mobile communications device. Why pick this particular time to leave it at home?
Thanks for the tip!
