Can you tell us more?  Was the battery swollen?  Did you leave it fully charged for an extended period of time?  Did you leave it in your car during the hot afternoon?  

Here is an example, but I believe this was a little P1 battery

I've seen this happen with a P2 Battery and a Spark battery, the P2 was punctured in a crash and the Spark happened because of a faulty charger, which also caught fire. That's in around 6 years of dealing with drones though, I've seen plenty of exploding none-DJI li-on batteries, but i wasn't directly involved with those, i just know they happened.
