Any reason a camera would overheat?

My dd has a point and shoot fuji camera, she took it to school today (last day) and I went in for a program, she found me and gave me her camera, it wasn't working. It was HOT. And the batteries were so hot they actually burnt the palm of my hand. The batteries are fairly new, maybe been charged half a dozen times, if that. Would it be the batteries that did this or the camera? The camera was new at Christmas.

Sounds like a possible short somewhere in the camera. Be careful, they could explode.

Be sure they were loaded correctly as this is the most likely problem when overheating occurs.
