The women who were the owner of the now completely destroyed iPhone 6 Plus said that Amanda Bentz was waked by a crazy sound at 3 AM in the morning to find out that her iPhone 6 Plus was on fire.
The report said that the flames were coming out from the right side of the device which has ruined her nightstand. She also added if her hubby wouldn’t have taken proper measures to stop the fire, then it would have been a worse event. He immediately the covered the fire with a shirt which put out the fire.
