MacBook Pro spontaneously caught fire in sleep mode, owner got burns

Recently there was information that the owner of the Apple MacBook Pro received minor injuries when the battery of his laptop spontaneously caught fire. This post is about a 2015 MacBook Pro.

This model has been banned by some airlines as its battery is considered potentially hazardous. Reddit user Squeezieful has confirmed that he suffered minor hand burns while pulling the burning laptop out from under the bed. If he had not noticed the fire, the consequences could have been much more dire.

According to the user, the MacBook Pro was in sleep mode under the bed and was not charging. At some point, he woke up from the smell of molten plastic. In addition to burns to his hands, the laptop owner escaped with only a damaged carpet.

Back in 2015, Apple recalled its 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops that were on sale between September 2015 and February 2016. The owner could be blamed for using a potentially dangerous device. However, Squeezieful claims that its laptop was already in a service center and serviced as part of this recall campaign.
