I plugged my oculus in with the cable and adapter that it came with, I left it charging for about 20 minutes and when I came back the room smelled like burnt plastic, the area around the port was melted

I received this same copy/paste wording. My Oculus quest 2 caught fire! I have a small child and a baby!! Who knows what could have happened if I had left home.....
This seems to be an issue that Oculus has with a lot of devices. I really think that Oculus needs to address the issue publicly because it is very scary to see something on fire sitting on your table. And the customer service has been horrendous. No one has helped me whatsoever and it is absolutely not my fault. I used the cord that came with the device when I was charging it. This is my third VR headset and I really do enjoy VR. But, I'm not sure what I'm going to do now.
