Engadget (via Cult of Mac) has the details on what looks to be a case of iPhone syncing that's too hot to handle. (Sorry):

On Saturday, Italian blogger Tim Colbourne was charging his 3G handset and, after three hours, it sparked and caught fire at the base.

Apparently Colbourne found a Swede who'd had the same experience. Are these two isolated instances? Something to do with funky European power lines (hey, Japanese power is making BlackBerry Bold's flame-on, who knows how puissant the EU is?!)? Or a flame-ringed sign of iPhone problems to come?
