    VIDEO: Teen’s iPhone 6 bursts into flames on plane


    When you’re in the middle of a flight, the last thing you want to see is fire. Unfortunately, that happened to a teenage girl from Seattle in midair on a flight to Hawaii. The girl, Anna Crail, was watching a movie on her iPhone 6 when flames suddenly started coming out of the iPhone 6.

    “When it started, I thought we were going down, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, there’s a fire on the plane,'” Crail told the news outlet. Crail further explained to the news outlet, “All of a sudden there was like 8-inch flames coming out of” her phone. Crail reacted by flipping the phone onto the ground, later getting someone’s seat. At that point, flames started rising, and many passengers stood up to see what was happening.

    Luckily, this incident did not cause any fatal damage to the plane or any of the passengers boarding the plane. Alaska Air crews did not hesitate to extinguish the fire as quickly as possible, as they were trained to do.

    Aviation expert John Nance recommends passengers “to always keep your phone on airplane mode because searching for a signal the whole time can wear out your battery.”
