It's still unclear how this MacBook caught fire, but Matty from Australia claims that his MacBook's battery started "hissing like a steam valve" just seconds before bursting into flames. The MacBook was charging overnight while in sleep mode before it started smoking and as you can tell from the pics, it's the battery compartment that got charred the most. Good thing it was still under warranty.
