First off, congratulations for following rule #1 for charging any battery - don't leave unattended.

Second, charger used, battery type, charger settings?

Other than almost losing some fingers and toasting some batteries, I am glad to hear that everything is okay. At least no one was seriously injured and you didn't burn down any property.

As many have asked, please provide as much detail as possible, so that others can learn from the incident and avoid a similar situation. Thanks.
