iPhone 4 attempts self combustion on a passenger flight in Australia

An iPhone 4 caused a major scare on an Australian passenger flight when it appeared to commence self combustion.

Luckily the aircraft had already landed when the incident started and a flight attendant carried out recovery actions which included extinguishing the iPhone.

BREAKING: Fire at Apple Cupertino Campus

Apple's Headquarters in Cupertino caught fire overnight. A three-alarm fire burned in the building known as Valley Green 6. The Santa Clara Fire Department received reports of smoke at about 10 P.M. Pacific Time. No injuries have been reported and the building was cleared. At about midnight Pacific Time the fire dispatcher was still uncertain on when the fire would be contained.
