Maine girl's cellphone catches fire in her pocketFebruary 3, 2014 @ 4:16 pm
KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) - The "stop, drop and roll" mantra came in handy for a Maine eighth-grader when her cellphone caught fire in her pocket at school.
Kennebunk middle school Principal Jeff Rodman tells The Portland Press Herald ( http://bit.ly/1fiLLMp) that the girl heard a popping sound Friday morning and smoke started billowing around her.
Boys were herded from the room so the 14-year-old girl could shed her flaming pants. She also did the "stop, drop and roll" move to help put out the fire. She was treated at a hospital.
Her mother had given her the Apple iPhone 5C two months earlier.
