Why charged mobile battery bursts when put in fire?

I want to know reason behind it, I think that it is due to some reactions in battery but still I'm so confused.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Why is hydrogen so combustive? How does vinegar get rust off iron? How did the Big Bang end up creating life? There's nothing magic about your phone battery exploding because of fire. Everything in our universe happens because of some type of scientific phenomenon. Everything in our universe can be explained by scientific formulas, research, and experimentation. There is nothing in our universe, however, that break the laws of physics, unless you believe in divine beings but even deities would use the laws of physics to make sure everything makes sense, wouldn't they? \$\endgroup\$ – KingDuken Feb 8 at 17:31
