My Samsung caught on fire tonight. I was driving, phone plugged in charging on phone holder. My phone was hot to the touch, so I immediately removed charger & the plug came out on fire. What is going on?? Burnt a hole through my favorite joggers but it could've been so much worse. Not to mention I'm 37 weeks pregnant & WAS DRIVING!!!

My husband's Samsung s20fe was just smoking from the charging port. I unplugged it quickly and there is a burning smell. I have the same phone. I'm worried now that either phone could start a fire, especially if we charge overnight. Is there a fix for these phones?
