(LAS VEGAS) – A video shows an iPhone exploding and firing in a shop in Las Vegas.
In the video of Friday, an employee of an unidentified store is seen at a desk with the phone on the left. A cloud of smoke appears before visible flames rise from the phone.
The employee is seen jumping and running to the side as soon as the explosion occurs, before picking up a phone at the front of the store to make a phone call. As this happens, the flames die while the phone burns out quickly.
ABC affiliate KTNV reports that the phone was in the store to replace its screen after it was cracked when the battery expanded from the heat. A store representative told KTNV that the phone is an iPhone 6+.
According to KTNV nobody was injured in the incident.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
