Contact your seller instantly and get both phone and charger replaced.

The fact that u cent using it even tho it was getting got is dangerous.
U don't want to wake up in the night with your house on fire.

Yup that is a terminal hardware failure from the charger. More concerning is the impact on the phone and battery.
Request everything to be replaced.
Good luck.
