Samsung might not be the only smartphone maker withexploding handsetsin its portfolio - chief rival Apple may be feeling the heat as well.

Surveillance camera footage that appeared to have been recorded on Friday captured an iPhone bursting into flames and exploding almost right beside an employee in an unidentified Las Vegas phone fix shop.

In a video obtained by KTNV news channel, a man can be seen sitting in a corner using his phone when an object on the table bursts into flames. The employee jumps away as the phone begins smoking.

The phone's owner had taken it to the store to fix a cracked screen, CBS reported. Indeed, it would seem that in some cases, a damaged mobile device can be a fire hazard.

Although it can not be identified in the video which smartphone exploded but ABC affiliate KTNV that reported the news notes that the phone was Apple iPhone 6s.
