HOUSTON, Texas (WKRN) – A Texas father says his daughter’s iPhone caught on fire while it was in her pocket.

Randy Veazey said smoke was billowing out of the iPhone 6 Plus.

“I mean, she could have been asleep you know. You know how kids are, they could be asleep with the phone in the bed. Even worse, it could have been laying down when it did this and everyone asleep and it could have caught something on fire,” Veazey,

Employees at the Apple Store said they would send pictures of the phone to the company and that Apple would look into what caused the phone to overheat.

Veazey said he is just glad his daughter wasn’t hurt.
