If the battery has already been damaged to the point of fumes I would proceed with extreme caution . Best to work in a well ventilated area and be prepared for a fire a metal container with a lid to drop the phone into in the event of a fire . Methanol works well to loosen the glue holding the battery and shouldn't react with the lithium . If your using a heat gun to soften the glue be careful not to over heat the battery . Best to heat from the backside not to put heat directly on the battery. Hope this helps

Aaaand this is why you don't play with batteries inside.* try to go extremely slowly, if you punctured the battery then obviously you weren't very careful and I would say just bring it to a repair place if you not comfortable doing it yourself. Also check the logic board for damage from the Sparks/flames. Reassemble and hope :)

*they are fun to watch explode if your outside :)
