Girl’s iPhone Bursts Into Flames Mid-Flight

Representatives from Apple and the FAA did not return calls for comment on the story.

"When it started I thought we were going down, and I was like, 'oh my god, there's a fire on the plane,'" Crail said. The flight from Bellingham was carrying 163 passengers high above the Pacific Ocean when the fire started. "All of the sudden there was like 8-inch flames coming out of my phone," Crail said from Honolulu. "And I flipped it off onto the ground and it got under someone's seat, and the flames were just getting higher and a bunch of people stood up."
