If Samsung batteries explosion and phone catching fire was not enough headache for the company already, here comes double trouble. A guy named Nathan Dornacher from Florida claims his Samsung Galaxy Note 7 set his car on fire and we all know, battery could be the only reason.
Nathan gave an interview to Fox News and told about the accident. He left the car parked with phone charging and AC turned on to keep the car cool as he had to move some furniture but when he came back, car was engulfed with fire and flames.
“Not the barbecue I wanted on my day off. We go to a garage sale to grab a desk for bonnie get back to the house unload the car leave it running ac on to keep the car cool we were planning on grabbing the dog and Bonnie and heading to petco, I head back out to the car to grab my phone which was on the charger (me and Lydia always fight over the house charger) go to open the door and see flames inside… open the door and it’s engulfed run inside to get extinguisher and of course not to be found yell at Lydia to call Fire Department and well here is the end result….”
Luckily, there was no one in the car narrowly avoiding human injuries.
