A Michigan woman claims thought she was going to die when her cell phone sparked a blaze that destroyed her car. The woman, who choose not to be identified, said she was driving her car when one of two cell phones sitting in her cup holder caught fire. “A Samsung Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S8. I thought I was going to die when I saw the sparks and the fire,” the woman told WXYZ. She pulled over her Nissan Maxima before the flames completely engulfed her car. “It happened quick. It just went up in flames. People were telling me to get away from the car. What if I was on the highway, stuck in traffic and couldn’t get out,” she said.
