This woman is pretty lucky that nothing more serious than two small fires resulted in her bedroom. I know, it sounds crazy, but a phone exploding is nothing to laugh at.

You've heard about phones exploding when they're left charging with faulty chargers or being smothered by a pillow or clothing. But in one woman's case, she said that her phone simply exploded.

A fourth-year computer science student, Hope Casserly, said that she was settled in for the night, with her Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 on the nightstand. Her Facebook post says that the phone wasn't plugged in, it was simply sitting there at 93% battery charge.

"My back was to the phone and ... I saw a light going across my shoulder, which would be the inside of the battery on fire. It hit the wall and fell onto my bed," Casserly said, according to the CBC.
