In an earlier article we wrote about the troubles with the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 batteries and how they are prone to combusting and even exploding. The company was forced to issue a recall on the phones, but it was too late for this guy.
Nathan Dornacher had just parked his Jeep in the driveway and left his Note 7 in the charging port. While Nathan was carrying a new desk he just bought back home he told his daughter to take the dog to the car. That’s when he noticed that something was very wrong.
Nathan managed to snap a photo of his car burning and by the time firefighter’s arrived the poor guy’s Jeep was reduced to a pile of melted metal and plastic.

Nathan wrote on his Facebook page: "Not the barbecue I wanted on my day off. We go to a garage sale to grab a desk for Bonnie get back to the house unload the car leave it running AC on to keep the car cool we were planning on grabbing the dog and Bonnie and heading to Petco, I head back out to the car to grab my phone which was on the charger (me and Lydia always fight over the house charger) go to open the door and see flames inside... open the door and it’s engulfed run inside to get extinguisher and of course not to be found yell at Lydia to call Fire Department and well here is the end result...."
Samsung told FOX that it promised that it would investigate the case and do everything they can for Mr. Dornacher.
However, Nathan said that at first Samsung wasn’t much help and that he spent over an hour arguing with them over the phone. He’s afraid that he might have to go to court with the case.
