By East Brandywine Fire Company
December 2, 2011

On Friday 12/2/11 one of East Brandywine's Fire Fighters experienced a close call with an Apple iPhone.

While charging the phone using the Apple provided computer connection, the phone spontaneously caught fire.

After the phone fell to the floor igniting the carpet, the phone was thrown out a nearby window.

Despite the phone being relatively small it produced a large volume of smoke and a noxious smell.

At this point local Apple representatives could not determine what caused the phone to ignite. The phone is being sent to California so that Apple Engineers can investigate the cause.

We will keep you posted regarding the findings.
