Default Thoughts on Fire Reports?

There have been numerous reports of devices catching fire or reaching extremely high temperatures. Have any of you experienced this; what are your thoughts on these reports?

For those who didn't click on the links, preventative measures are as follows:

1. Do not let your phone or its battery be subjected to extreme heat (Example: leaving it in a parked car that is under the hot Sun)

2. Try to not overwork your device (Example: Playing video games while charging the device)

3. Don’t charge the smartphone while you are asleep and if so, make sure to put it in a place far away from you and any object that easily catches fire.

4. Don’t use unofficial chargers, 2 out of the 3 exploding smartphones were using unofficial chargers. They also remove warranty
