According to Babu, he has not yet understood how the device caught fire. But they tell people that never keep the phone under your pillow at bedtime. He said that many people contacted me after this incident. The fire may have started due to friction, whatever it may be, but it is not safe to keep the phone under the pillow at bedtime.
