Interestingly enough, Gagne stated that his laptop wasn’t in use, plugged in or charging when it caught fire. He also said that fortunately he placed his MacBook on a coffee table and not with his journals and notebooks, which probably stopped his house from burning down.

The recall announced for the MacBook Pro 15-inch variant is voluntary. Apple says that individuals who own MacBook Pros that were bought between September 2015 to February 2017 are eligible for a battery replacement free of charge. You can report a battery recall through the official Apple website.
