It's something we all do — scroll through our feeds before bed, set the alarm clock on our cell and tuck it under our pillow for safekeeping (or to listen for a late-night bootycall text). Well, you may want to find another place for your phone at night. As this video shows, a 13-year-old girl's Samsung cell phone literally set her pillow and bed on fire after overheating under her pillow.

Consumer beware; Samsung claims that the battery was a replacement and not the original cell's battery, and also made note of the warning label cautioning of possible overheating. Always double-check packaging and warning labels for all of your technological devices to help keep you and your family safe.
