Adding to the fire, a Florida man is claiming that his AirPods blew up at a gym where he works out.

Earlier this week, Floridian Jason Colon was working out at an LA Fitness in St. Petersburg while listening to a dance mix, when all of a sudden the headphones stopped working. Startled by the smoke, Colon removed the headphones and placed them on a bench to get help. When he examined the right ear bud, it looked charred.

France said Wednesday that "all indications" suggested the Syrian regime was using chlorine weapons against rebel forces. Videos on social media depicted a fire fight with rebels on the ground, until the pilot was killed by a grenade.

"It's the craziest thing I ever went through", Colon told News Channel 8. "You can see flame damage", Colon told a local news station. "He's thankful he thought to remove the wireless AirPods when he sensed trouble". He further stated that "I don't know what would've happened to my ear".

Colon says he believes the gadget's battery was responsible for the damage.

An Apple spokeswoman says the company is investigating and will reach out to Colon.
