Only a few days after Samsung recalled its Galaxy Note 7 smartphones, a St. Petersburg, Florida man says he found out the hard way on why the recall was issues in the first place. According to reports Nathan Dornacher's wife, Lydia said the family went to a yard sale. While unloading a desk they bought for their daughter, Nathan left his Note 7 charging in the center console of his Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Lydia said they sent their 8-year-old daughter, with the family's service dog, to get back in the Jeep to run more errands. After looking out the window Nathan realized his Jeep was on fire.

The phone had apparently exploded and engulfed his Jeep in flames. Local fire crews arrived and put out the fire. Nathan said his vehicle was a point of pride, telling FOX 13 News he had made many upgrades to the vehicle. Now those upgrades are ashes and Nathan will have to find a new car.
