Windows Phone disasters ? 'My Nokia Lumia 920 melted last night'

We have all been there. Through no fault of our own, our Windows Phones have been dropped, scratched up, sent sailing from a bicycle mount, or otherwise put in harm?s way at least once (more for some).
The latest chapter in Windows Phone horror stories comes from Windows Phone Central member abel920 who connected his loyal Nokia Lumia 920 to the micro USB charger before going to bed. He awoke to the smell of burning wires and wrote it off to someone toasting bread downstairs in the kitchen. While toasting bread in the middle of the night has happened, what generated the burnt wire smell was abel920?s Lumia 920 and charger.

And I use the wall charger for my 920, not Qi. I'm scared now...
