Absolutely not. At the very worst, a short will ruin the components and you may smell a burnt smell, but nothing will catch on fire unless you decide to cool your CPU with lighter-fluid soaked tissue paper and turn off the automatic thermal throttling feature.

Hi :) 

Yes it CAN....

I have seen it many times... mainly in offices where paper etc stacked on top catch fire...

But I have also seen BOTH Pcs and Lappies that have caught fire...

All the best Brett :)
