Default Nexus 4 melted itself when connecting charger

Went to put my phone on charge this morning, the nexus 4 started to over heat really bad and smoke was coming from the charger port when the charger was plugged in, in mere seconds the charger port was melted and crusted and the charger lead itself also done the same, tested with a few leads and it's the nexus device whenever the lead connects, the phone is perfect working order, never dropped or water damaged, this was purchased roughly a year ago and nothing has ever happened like this until today.

Does your ROM have any custom charging features?

Did you used the right charger? May you had something in the usb port or your phone cause melting is a bit odd nevee heard that only from couple of samsung but like badboy said pic or didnt happen so we can see how it looks like and maybe we the can find the cause of it.

Most likely thing is metal or moisture in the charging port.
