2 year old Samsung S8 suddenly got hot, the battery expanded enough to shatter the case

While talking on my 2 year old Samsung S8 it suddenly got hot, the battery expanded enough to shatter the back cover.  After a couple of minute the phone cooled , Phone still works fine, charges well and no lost of any functions ( I can find) or  speed .

 

I have ordered new batter kit and cover, but have a question - is the phone safe to continue to use. I have been using for the last 3 day with out issue. but am concerned, it mah heat up again.

If you are getting a replacement battery and rear glass you should be fine but if it warms up agian I would discontinue use. Did you drop it? Have you ever replaced the battery before?
