The photo went viral online when a fire brigade shared it to show what can happen if you leave your phone unattended under your pillow. Preferably, you should place them on a table-top desk-top.
Phones can get very hot and without adequate ventilation, it can get so hot that it sparks a fire. The fire expert also advised that you should not charge or use your laptop on a bed either. It can heat up when left on soft surfaces and can cause a fire.
