Video shows Apple iPhone 4 catch fire while charging on Ohio family kitchen counter


A new video from a Nest camera captured the moment an iPhone 4 charging on an Ohio family’s kitchen counter caught fire overnight. 

At first, all is calm in the Cincinnati home. Then, suddenly, there’s a clattering. 

While the phone is initially not visible in the dark from across the room, brilliant orange- and pink-hued flames shoot upward. It burns bright for a moment before the fire dies down, although it is not out by the end of the video.

“Luckily we had just cleaned off the counter yesterday, as it usually has lots of school books and papers in that area,” he noted. “There were small pieces of the phone and black soot all over the counter this morning.”

“I realized how lucky we were that we didn’t have anything on the countertop and that it just went out on its own,” she said. 

Leisgang said the video had been shared in the hopes of potentially preventing a future fire in someone else’s house.
