    Uh... Although user error and a bad cable could've caused it, what I think happened (from a tech geek's perspective) is that the battery might have been degraded to the point where it became unstable and puffed up causing it to eventually blast into flames. I just don't know how usable it would've been (if at all) in such a state (a phone with a puffed and dying battery will probably not boot...). Another option is that some of the circuitry inside the phone failed, but again I highly doubt that. Yet another (very likely) cause is that something went wrong with that crappy charging station where everyone and their brother/sister/parents/etc... shoves whatever USB junk into that thing and wears it out...

    Yep, agree on all counts! It'd be interesting to ask the phone's owner if they had noticed any unusual charging behavior recently, like excessive warming. Or if the phone looked like it might have been bulging a little.
