Firefighters Warn People About The Dangers Of Sleeping With A Charging Phone


Pretty scary, right? It’s astonishing to see how something as simple as charging our devices has the potential to start a house fire, and even threaten people’s lives. You should always charge your phone, tablet, or laptop on a hard surface. Any soft, fabric surfaces (like beds, pillows, and couches) are a big no. The second you notice a charger that’s seen better days or is beginning to fray, throw it out and replace it. Old chargers have a greater chance of sparking and causing a fire.

Now that you know this pertinent information, ensure that you act on it. Charging your phone in the right place could mean the difference between life and death for you and your family. Be sure to spread this information to everyone you know, especially those with children and teens who use cellphones!
