"The likely result is that the pillow/bed will catch fire," the fire department added. "This places the child/teen as well as everyone else in the home in great danger."
We might not be tweens any more, but the option of charging our phones while we sleep and having them close by can be quite tempting. However, a full battery certainly isn't worth this kind of catastrophe.
It's also worth noting that having an uncertified charger can be cause for similar concerns. It's always important to make sure your charger is certified by your phone company, for example to check if it's is Apple certified, you'll find a 'Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad' logo.
BE SAFE Y'ALL!
