2013-03-31 - Seven tractors and car destroyed by blaze in large barn in Shropshire (Britain):
http://www.shropshirestar.com/news/emergency-services/2013/04/01/vehicles-damaged-in-huge-shropshire-barn-blaze/

Quote: "We believe the fire started in a car which was being stored in the barn."

Note: That's why I recommend you don't park your vehicle next to other vehicles or next to your home: doing so potentially magnifies the loss when fire breaks out. If their vehicles had been separated in this case then they'd still be without the car, but they'd have the seven tractors. Instead, the loss was huge. If I had to guess, since I began warning people of this danger, billions of dollars in losses have occurred - that were avoidable - because the warning went unheard or unheeded. That's right, BILLIONS of dollars in preventable losses. Ah well, not much I can do but warn and hope some people hear and some misery is prevented...

2013-03-31 - Passenger bus bursts into flame on I-80 near coastal Vallejo (California):

2013-03-31 - Car bursts into flame on I-91 near Irasburg (Vermont), near Lake Parker and Crystal Lake:
http://www.wcax.com/story/21844362/family-uninjured-following-car-fire

2013-03-31 - Car bursts into flame on I-15 in Salt Lake City (Utah):
http://www.ksl.com/?sid=24610975&nid=148
http://www.kutv.com/news/top-stories/stories/vid_4385.shtml

Note: Actually, what happened was, some newspaper in the back seat spontaneously combusted and the fire spread and destroyed the car. Paper is an absorbent flammable material and all such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting, including wood, paper, cardboard, clothing, straw, hay, generic trash, mulch, dried brush and grass, dead trees, etc. I realized paper was going to be a problem quite a while ago when two different mail trucks burst into flame on different roads and just minutes apart, in Big Chimney (West Virginia), as mentioned in the 2012-07-23 update. They got their mail from the same distribution center, and the mail was contaminated, and once they set out on their delivery routes, the contaminated mail burst into flame. There've been quite a number of mail truck fires in the last year, as one would expect...

2013-03-31 - Car bursts into flame while parked at shopping center in Upper Providence (Pennsylvania):
http://www.pottsmerc.com/article/20130331/NEWS01/130339925/car-fire-totals-volvo-in-shopping-center

Quote: "The owner of the Volvo, a Philadelphia man who was later located, was shopping in the area and away from his car when the fire started, police said. No one else was in or near the car."

Note: In other words, it was a non-running car that spontaneously combusted. That's been happening with increasing frequency over the last year and sometimes the results are devastating, like when a car in a garage bursts into flame and the fire destroys the home too, or when one bus bursts into flame and burns 29 more parked near it, or when a vehicle in a storage facility bursts into flame and destroys nearly 200 boats, RVs and collector cars, or when a boat bursts into flame at a dock and the fire destroys 57 more boats nearby. All of those events have happened, recently, and many more too. This is likely caused by hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a charge going through it, like the battery cables and wiring in vehicles...

2013-03-31 - Farm outbuilding and pile of wood destroyed by fire in Meridian (Idaho):
http://www.ktvb.com/news/Fire-destroys-farm-outbuilding-threatens-others-200806171.html
http://www.idahostatesman.com/2013/03/31/2515215/grass-fire-in-kuna-structure-fire.html

Quote: "When crews arrived, they found an outbuilding and debris, including wood piled up next to the building, on fire."

Note: Wood is a flammable absorbent material and all such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Such materials include wood, paper, cardboard, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool, hay, straw, etc.

2013-03-31 - Blaze erupts at recycling center in Toledo (Ohio):
http://www.13abc.com/story/21839495/fire-at-toledo-recycling-center

2013-03-31 - 800 tons of recycling material bursts into flame at recycling center in Cambridgeshire (Britain):
http://www.wisbechstandard.co.uk/news/video_up_to_800_tonnes_of_recyling_material_on_fire_at_massive_cambridgeshire_processing_plant_1_1997753

Note: Recycling centers and landfills have been burning up at a good clip this past year. Their vulnerability to the atmospheric problem asaulting us is that the materials they recycle frequently include lots of absorbent flammable materials and all such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting, including paper, cardboard, wood, generic trash, clothing, etc.

2013-03-31 - Pile of debris bursts into flame at recycling facility in Rocky Mount (North Carolina):
http://www.rockymounttelegram.com/news/blaze-doesnt-damage-recycling-facility-1915077

2013-03-31 - Garbage cart bursts into flame in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), fire spreads to vacant building:
http://fox6now.com/2013/03/31/vacant-building-catches-fire-near-21st-and-orchard/

2013-03-31 - Many vacant buildings have burned multiple times since 2008 in Flint (Michigan), near the Flint River:
http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/a28fa21e08ac427b825ad197b807a294/MI--Flint-Fires

Quote: "In all, 416 structures caught fire multiple times during the period."

Note: Well, as I've said before, vacant structures are inherently more vulnerable to the atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and methane problem. And putting out a fire doesn't make them less vulnerable, so they will burn again and again until eventually there is nothing left that CAN burn. The same is true of all homes, but vacant homes will burn first and hardest, as they have been. Once they're mostly gone then the fires will be destroying more occupied homes. Eventually it appears that everything that can burn - home, vehicle or otherwise - is going to burn. That is why living human beings are going to evacuate the surface of the Earth, voluntarily by relocating to safer habitats, or involuntarily, by dying from fires, explosions and poisonous hydrogen sulfide. The only question is how many people will be in each of those two catagories...

2013-03-31 - Another vacant building burns on the Eastern Shore in Virginia, 77th since mid-November:

2013-03-30 - Tractor trailer bursts into flame while parked at Walmart in Lake Charles (Louisiana):
http://www.kplctv.com/story/21835235/fire-fighters-respond-to-18-wheeler-fire

Note: As mentioned, vehicles don't need to be running to spontaneously combust. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel, common on older vehicles, and it is also reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it, like battery cables and other wiring found in ALL vehicles. They think this fire was 'electrical'. I'm sure it was, in the sense that it started with some copper with electricity running through it. This is surely the reason that non-running vehicles have been increasingly bursting into flame this past year, including boats at docks, vehicles parked in parking lots and garages and car ports, buses parked at bus depots, RVs parked in storage facilities, etc.

http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-national/tp-tamilnadu/two-cars-motorcycle-destroyed-in-fire-sabotage-suspected/article4563558.ece

Quote: "Only two days ago, in a fire accident, over 10 two-wheelers parked in the Tallakulam police station were destroyed."

Note: Suspect arson, blah blah. Nobody saw anyone, no surveillance footage, no motive, so it's just an assumption, as usual. Sorry fellas, I need more than an assumption, considering all the vehicles going up in flames inside peoples' garages and inside storage facilities and at parking garages and so on. Feel free to get back to us if you find any of that - what do you call it? - oh right, EVIDENCE.

http://www.hollandsentinel.com/news/x1959365159/Fire-reported-at-Chuck-E-Cheese-in-Lakes-Mall

Note: More trash spontaneously combusting. Trash is usually filled with flammable absorbent materials, all of which are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Such materials include wood, paper cardboard, generic trash, clothing, wool, cotton, hay, straw, etc.

2013-03-30 - Straw bursts into flame under concrete steps at apartment complex in Rapid City (North Dakota):

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas, and straw will absorb it until it's concentrated enough for spontaneous combustion to occur. This problem with straw and hay and wood is surely one of the primary causes for many of the destructive barn fires that are occurring...

2013-03-30 - Two homes and apartment building destroyed by massive six-alarm fire in Lawrence (Massachusetts):
http://www.boston.com/metrodesk/2013/03/30/blaze/7xfK2qVnFStGQPGXbsMeAO/story.html
http://www.wcvb.com/news/local/boston-north/6-alarm-fire-destroys-3-homes-in-Lawrence/-/11984708/19533078/-/sgdfuu/-/index.html

Note: Running right through the middle of Lawrence is the Merrimack River. Also, 4 of 5 units were vacant in that apartment building. Vacant apartments and structures are more vulnerable to hydrogen sulfide and methane for a few reasons: 1) they often don't have heat and heat rises and expands air, which would help to keep outside gases from getting inside; 2) nobody is there using fire on a regular basis, which would help burn off any gases that do get inside before they reach dangerous levels; 3) doors and windows are usually closed and stay closed, so once gas does get inside, it will tend to stay there, and will keep accumulating...

Note: Bus drivers have threatened to strike over all the bus fires in Perth. The government says they have no plans to take any buses offline since that would seriously inconvenience residents, who need that mass transit option. Soooo...looks like residents are going to be inconvenienced by buses bursting into flame sometimes instead. Hopefully no people will end up getting incinerated. They've called in Mercedes-Benz to help find the problem. It's kinda interesting watching them scramble to solve the mystery when the answer is right here, just one URL away...

http://courier-tribune.com/sections/news/local/wind-low-humidity-fuel-horse-barn-fire.html

Quote: "He estimated the barn had six to eight horse stalls and a workshop with wood-working equipment, two refrigerators and three or four chain saws. A 240 Massey-Ferguson tractor was damaged."

Note: Chainsaws are combustion engines and those are spontaneously combusting in ever-increasing numbers now. Also, a wood shop, and wood is an absorbent flammable material, and all such are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Lotsa vulnerabilities in this place, so it's no surprise that it burned up..

2013-03-29 - Major fire damages packaging business in Birdsboro (Pennsylvania):
http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/story?section=news/local&id=9046414

Note: Birdsboro lies along the Schuylkill River. Also, packaging sounds like it might involve paper and cardboard, both flammable absorbent materials, all of which are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Such materials include wood, paper, cardboard, generic trash, clothing, wool, cotton, hay, straw, etc.

Third fire, two businesses destroyed, one of them a clothing shop. Fourth fire, a stack of hay burst into flame. Clothing and hay are both absorbent flammable materials. Roof thatching is too. The first fire, well, who knows, but multiple fires like that erupting in the same general area (same town) in the same general timeframe could be a sign of a flammable gas plume blowing through and igniting here and there as it goes. Also, India is a peninsula country, mostly surrounded by ocean...

Note: Another boat burst into flame in Pompano Beach recently too, as mentioned in the 2013-01-12 update. Florida is downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming highly flammable (and deadly) hydrogen suldide now. Lots of mysterious deaths all across Florida this past year too...

Quote: "The driver told News 8 the vehicle's rear brakes caught fire as he went through East Petersburg."

Note: There's the brake-friction and absorbency problem again. You can no longer count on your brakes functioning. You can't even count on them not catching fire and torching your entire vehicle, though this problem does hit massive vehicles with lots of tires the hardest. This problem is caused by tire rubber absorbing hydrogen sulfide, which burns very hot. Other possible effects of this problem include tires exploding or igniting and fluid lines rupturing (like brake lines or power steering lines or hydraulic lines)...

http://fox13now.com/2013/03/28/suspicious-fires-reported-in-midvale/

Note: Two fences also burst into flame in the same general area in the same general timeframe. Fences made of wood? I bet they were, though the story doesn't specify. Wood is an absorbent flammable material and all such are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. And obviously vehicles of all kinds are bursting into flame all over, whether they're running or not. These types of events are what you'd expect to see when a flammable gas plume of some size wafts through an area. One wonders how many people quietly dropped dead of 'heart attacks' or 'natural causes' in their homes in that area on that night...

Note: Another wood-related fire. Wood is a flammable absorbent material and it is absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. There have been a whole lot of wood-related fires this past year: sawmills, lumber yards, pallets and pallet companies, wood shops of all kinds (school, private, commercial, prison), furniture and furniture businesses, wood carving businesses, door companies, cabinet companies, frame companies (for artwork), porches, gazebos, decks, barns, playgrounds, you name it...

Quote: "While first-responders were on their way, dispatch advised of a woman 'taking off her clothes.'"

Note: If hydrogen sulfide is indeed behind the recent spates of people stripping naked and acting crazy, as I highly suspect, then that would also potentially explain the car bursting into flame here, since it is an extremely flammable gas. I wish I could ask her why she took her clothes off. Was her body's heat-regulation system chemically disrupted, so she felt really hot, even though it was 30 degrees (F) outside?

Note: This was on Maryland's Eastern Shore, as opposed to the dozens of fires at vacant structures on Virginia's Eastern Shore. I guess all of the coastal eastern states in the U.S. may have an Eastern Shore. And they didn't call these two buildings barns, but that's basically what they were...

http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/Structure-Fire-in-Colorado-Springs-200365961.html

Quote: "It's not the first fire on Kachina Drive in the last couple of years. Cimarron Hills Fire Chief Matt Love couldn't give an exact number, but told 11 News there have been several on the street: some structure fires, some in nearby bushes. As recently as December two fires broke out at the same mobile home within a 24-hour period."

Note: That's what you'd expect to see in areas that are topographically vulnerable to fires caused by hydrogen sulfide: multiple fires at the same location, dried brush catching fire, repetition. Whatever this area's vulnerability, putting out a fire doesn't address it. The problem, if it's topographic, probably isn't fixable in which case eventually everything that can burn there WILL burn, but then that's probably true of all areas...

Quote: "The fire, which appears to have started in the area of the panel box, was contained to the basement of the two-story home..."

Note: Basements and underground areas are where a heavier-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate, and hydrogen sulfide is also reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it, like the wiring found around panel boxes and the electrical facilities commonly found underground in cities and towns all over...

Note: They're assuming arson because the two vehicles caught fire within 15 minutes and the fires were in the ame general locale, yet that is exactly what we might expect to see when a flammable gas plume blows over an area. Of course, if they have any actual EVIDENCE of arson, they could always present it, like surveilllance footage, witnesses, motive. The fact that they offer nothing means they probably have only their assumption. Sorry, assumptions aren't good enough...

All have been labeled arson,, yet there is no motive, no witnesses, no surveillance footage, no suspects, no fingerprints, no nothin'. They're probably calling these arson because they can't imagine that absorbent flammable materials (like wood, paper, cloth, etc) are simply spontaneously combusting...but they are.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/videos/news/Bangalore-Massive-fire-in-a-timber-factory-6-feared-dead/videoshow/19186788.cms

Note: Wood is an absorbent material and it's absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. As a consequence there have been a great many wood-related fires in the past year: sawmills, lumber yards, pallets and pallet companies, wood shops of all kinds (school, private, commercial, prison), furniture and furniture businesses, wood carving businesses, door companies, cabinet companies, frame companies (for artwork), porches, gazebos, decks, barns, playgrounds, you name it...

Quote: "Montgomery Fire Chief Doug Latham says the fire likely started in the wheel area of the trailer..."

Note: There's the brake-friction and absorbency problem again. When this problem hits - which is caused by tire rubber absorbing hydrogen sulfide - sometimes the brakes burn up or ignite, or tires ignite or explode, or the entire vehicle burns up. Sometimes you can tell which fires are caused by this problem because of the burn marks around the wheel well(s), or when they simply tell you that's where the fire began, as in this case. In the accidents section below you will also see a number of accidents likely caused by this same problem, where the brakes burned out instead of the tires or the vehicle bursting into flame...

http://www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2013/03/staten_island_south_beach_brus.html

Note: It's not even fire season yet. Look at the above fires: in low-lying areas where highly flammable heavier-than-air hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate. The gas will be absorbed into absorbent flammable materials, like brush, dried grass, dead trees, etc., and eventually spontaneously combust or find some other ignition source (rusty iron/steel, lightning, whatever) and then you'll see fires like this. Areas likely to be hardest hit by fires are coastal communities (like the one recently wiped out in South Carolina, as mentioned in the 2013-03-16 update), and communities that are downwind of low-lying areas like valleys, gorges, canyons, rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, rivers, quays, harbors, etc. Also, communities on the western side of mountains may be hit hard too, at least at times, as the gas will not always blow over the mountains and will slide back down, sometimes accumulating on the side from which the wind comes...

http://www.onlinesentinel.com/news/Two-fires-in-Bingham-late-Saturday-subject-of-arson-investigation.html
http://www.pressherald.com/news/bingham-blazes-destroy-garage-damage-business_2013-03-25.html

Quote: "A tractor, a sewage tank truck, a trailer, a plow truck and a bucket loader were destroyed."

Quote: "The ice cream shop, Here's the Scoop, is owned by Scott and Vicki Stanchfield, who work and live next door at the Riverside Inn."

Note: They suspect arson because the fires were in non-running vehicles and because the two fires occurred within 2 hours. Well, as they obviously haven't noticed, non-running vehicles are spontaneously combusting everywhere. That's probably because hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper like that near the batteries on vehicles. And multiple fires in the same general area in a short period of time is what you might expect to see if a flammable hydrogen sulfide and/or methane atmospheric gas plume were to blow through an area. While their assumptions may have been reasonable in the past, such assumptions are going to be increasingly incorrect as time goes on. Also, Bingham is near Wyman Lake and sits along the eastern bank of the Kennebec River...

http://www.freep.com/article/20130323/NEWS06/130323049/Man-injured-during-explosion-fire-West-Michigan-marina-

Note: Look at the above two fires: both storage facilities for vehicles. As I've mentioned, it's not too safe to park your vehicle next to other vehicles, not with all the vehicles spontaneously combusting now. Well, that's ALL these places do: park vehicles next to each other. As a consequence, these fires can be devastating. The worst such fire so far was when 200 boats, RVs and collector cars went up in flames at a storage facility in Mishawaka (Indiana), as mentioned in the 2013-02-11 update. That's still the current record for most vehicles to be incinerated in one fire...

Note: The motorcycle fire spread to a car and dumpster then to the apartment building itself. As mentioned a number of times, you don't want to park your vehicle(s) near your residence so that you don't lose everything when either one bursts into flame. Of course, in an apartment building, even if YOU don't park near the building, others likely will, since they probably aren't aware of what's going on...

http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2013/03/agawam_deck_fire_causes_30k_da.html

Note: Deck made of wood? I bet it was. Wood and other absorbent flammable materials (paper, cardboard, generic trash, clothing, hay, straw, mulch, etc.) are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Also, from the map in the story, this place is ONE BLOCK from the Connecticut River, a low-lying area where a heavier-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate when the wind isn't blowing it on and from where any gas that has accumulated will blow when the wind picks up. So you probably don't want a big pile of wood attached to your residence, and especially not if you're a block from a big river like that. On the plus side, doesn't sound like this fire did anything but destroy the deck, so now they DON'T have a big pile of wood attached to their home. Of course, if their HOME is made of wood, or they park a vehicle next to it...

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/bangalore/Bus-tyre-bursts-sparks-off-a-fire/articleshow/19118164.cms

Note: The fire started with the tires. That's the brake-friction and absorbency problem there. The problem is that tire rubber is absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, probably the former because tires rest on the ground and hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas. Then when brakes are applied, the brake-friction generates more heat than usual (since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot), and then all sorts of bad things can happen: tires ignite or explode, fluid lines rupture, the brakes themselves ignite, the entire vehicle goes up in flame, or all of the above. This problem affects large and massive vehicles (like buses, tanker trucks, tractor trailers, etc.) more than smaller vehicles because big vehicles tend to have more tires (e.g. more rubber) and it takes more brake-friction to slow such vehicles so there is more chance that this problem will manifest...

Note: Were there any planes in there? If so then that'd be my guess on where the fire started. Just another kind of combustion vehicle, and those are spontaneously combusting everywhere now...

http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Suspected-arsonist-turns-up-heat-on-Palo-Pinto-199431591.html

Quote: "There just is no reason for them to start..."

Note: Sure there is. Dried brush is a flammable absorbent material, it absorbs hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, and eventually spontaneous combustion occurs. This is just one consequence of our atmosphere filling up with accelerants. Eventually anything on the surface of the Earth that is combustible will burn: vehicles, homes, businesses, infrastructure, forests, brush. I used to think we might have five years left. That's starting to look optimistic...

Quote: "Morris said they were there Thursday morning and heard a pop in the attic, then saw smoke."

Note: There's that popping sound again, heard just before many fires this past year. That is probably a small hydrogen sulfide and/or methane plume finding an ignition source - possibly electrified copper - and igniting. When the plumes are large then you have entire neighborhoods shaking from the explosion, as with the 'mystery explosion' in East Brainerd, listed above...

http://thesouthern.com/news/local/unexplained-boom-baffles-experts-residents/article_4fdeaa8c-9053-11e2-8c64-001a4bcf887a.html

Note: These community-shaking explosions, sometimes accompanied by flashes of light in the sky, are very likely atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and/or methane plumes finding an ignition source and detonating. As the Earth continues to belch forth more of both gases, these explosions will continue to increase in frequency and power. Eventually these explosions may equal the destructive force of small thermonuclear explosions like that which destroyed Hiroshima, but minus the radiation. (Unless an explosion destroys a nuclear plant, in which case there will be radiation too.)

http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/northern-outlook/8445118/Truck-fire-fuels-rage

Note: Police say arson, but don't mention any evidence. They may simply be assuming, as others have, because the vehicles were 'cold', not running. Welp, vehicles don't NEED to be running to burst into flame; hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, like that near battery cables. LOTS of non-running vehicles are going up in flames: boats at dock, RVs in storage facilities, cars in car parks and parking lots and garages, autos at auto repair shops, vehicles in junkyards and scrapyards, etc. Sadly, the people whose job it is to be aware of such things have not noticed that this is the case, which means their assumptions and conclusions must be suspect from now on unless they have compelling evidence like surveillance footage or witnesses or at the very least a motive, and they offer none of that here...

http://www.wpxi.com/news/news/local/small-fire-leads-evacuation-upmc-mercy-hospital/nWwpQ/

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is water-soluble. Therefore, it may infiltrate buildings via the water supply. In fact, it has done so. A library in Ohio was closed because hydrogen sulfide was entering the building via contaminated water, as mentioned in the 2012-11-29 update. Water heaters often have pilot lights. So hydrogen sulfide comes in via the water supply, evaporates out near the water heater, pilot light, rusty iron/steel or electrified copper ignites the gas. In this case it was the engine for a water pump that caught fire, and an engine is like a vehicle without any perks...

http://www.connecttristates.com/news/story.aspx?id=873317

Quote: "They had invested a year of construction on the home for Brian's mother."

Note: Homes under construction are inherently more vulnerable to flammable hydrogen sulfide and methane blowing through the atmosphere than are well-sealed, completed occupied homes. That's especially true in the framing stage when all that wood is fully exposed to the atmosphere. So building construction is sort of a race now - can one complete a building and get it sealed up before it burns down? In this case, the answer to that question was 'no'...

2013-03-14 - Four cars burst into flame at junkyard in Hamilton (New Jersey):
http://www.nj.com/mercer/index.ssf/2013/03/hamilton_firefighters_quickly.html

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it. These were scrap cars so they probably didn't have batteries. Hydrogen sulfide is also reactive with rusty iron/steel. These were junk cars so they probably DID have some rust on them, and that's likely the cause of this fire. There have been a whole lot of fires just like this in scrapyards and junkyards around the world, even scrap iron catching fire on cargo ships. There is no other rational explanation for piles of iron and steel bursting into flame; only hydrogen sulfide explains that...

Quote: "Investigators on the scene say the engine blocks were cold so they believe the fires were intentionally set."

Note: These investigators obviously are not paying any attention to what's been happening around the world in the last year or two. Vehicles do not have to be running, and need not have been running recently, in order to spontaneously combust now. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, like battery cables, and it is reactive with rusty iron/steel, as is found on many vehicles. MANY non-running vehicles have been bursting into flame: boats at docks, cars in parking lots, garages, car parks, buses in bus depots, trucks at trucking firms, golf carts in storage buildings, tractors in barns, you name it. That town might wanna hire some better investigators...

http://www.newsday.com/long-island/nassau/unoccupied-school-bus-catches-fire-in-valley-stream-1.4804264

Note: Vehicles don't have to be running to burst into flame. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it, like the thick battery cables that connect to batteries in vehicles. (And there are other sources of copper in vehicles too, running to the lights and the dashboard and so on.) This is highly likely why so many non-running vehicles are bursting into flame in parking garages and parking lots, in driveways and inside peoples' garages, boats at docks, etc. It is because of this problem that I think it's wise to park your vehicle, when possible, away from your residence and away from other vehicles. I've seen untold numbers of stories where a non-running vehicle has burst into flame and burned down a home, sometimes killing everyone in the house. Those people might still be alive, if only they'd understood the danger...

http://www.dailypress.com/news/breaking/dp-arson-67-easter-shore,0,7680672.story

Note: And still, nobody's ever seen anyone near these fires, there is no motive, there is no surveillance footage. Apparently these fire officials are completely unaware that flammable absorbent materials (like wood, paper, cardboard, etc) are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. And there's also the copper and rusty iron/steel reactivity problem with hydrogen sulfide too. Let's see if they figure things out before the destroyed building count reaches 1000...

http://www.hopeprescott.com/blowout-causes-fire-that-destroys-car-carrier/

Note: And yet another tire exploding. This is obviously going to be an ongoing and escalating problem, and it will hit massive vehicles the hardest, working its way down over time to smaller vehicles. The problem is that tire rubber is absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, probably the former because tires rest on the ground and hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas. Then when brakes are applied, the brake-friction generates more heat than usual (since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot), and then all sorts of bad things can happen: tires ignite or explode, fluid lines (brake, hydraulic, power steering) rupture, the brakes themselves ignite, the entire vehicle goes up in flame, or all of the above. The more massive the vehicle and the more tire rubber it has, the more likely this problem will manifest. It affects planes too; they've been having landing gear problems and tires exploding, especially after landing, when they tend to hit their brakes the hardest...

Their skin is kinda rubbery and may be absorbing hydrogen sulfide just like tire rubber is doing (which is sometimes causing tires to ignite and/or explode, among other things, when brakes are applied)...

Trash is also spontaneously combusting, at landfills, recycling centers, in trash cans and garbage trucks. The cause is the same for the pallet fires and the trash fires: they are both absorbent flammable materials and such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. These materials include: wood, mulch, generic trash, cotton, wool, cloth, clothing, paper, cardboard, brush, dried dead trees, and much more...

http://fox2now.com/2013/03/11/five-dead-in-afghanistan-helicopter-crash/

Note: Nobody was there at the time, off-hours. Basements are where a heavier-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will tend to accumulate once it infiltrates a building. Basements are also where water heaters are usually located and the pilot light may provide an ignition source. Basements are also where electrical boxes are often located, and hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it...

2013-03-10 - Explosion damages police building in Taytay in the Philippine Islands, 4 injured:

http://manilastandardtoday.com/2013/03/12/4-people-hurt-in-soco-explosion/

Note: Taytay sits on the banks of the Laguna de Bay and is about 5 miles from ocean waters too. The explosion happened inside the Explosives and Ordnance Division office. I mentioned ammo depots burning and exploding specifically in the full hypothesis. That was over a year ago. In this past year there have been ammo depot explosions in Russia (huge one, mushroom cloud), Congo, the island of Cyprus, Louisiana, Turkey, and fireworks factories (the civilian equivalent) have exploded in China, Indonesia, Nigeria, and more. You probably don't want to be living anywhere near any kind of facility that makes or stores munitions or fireworks of any kind...

2013-03-10 - House hit by explosion and fire in Frame (West Virginia):
http://www.wowktv.com/story/21567538/multiple-homes-on-fire-in-frame

Note: Water-heater again. Water heaters are a serious explosion and fire risk now. Hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and water heaters are usually on the bottom floor, often the basement. Hydrogen sulfide is also water-soluble and may get inside buildings via the water supply. And with a pilot light right there, if the water supply DOES get contaminated then over time enough gas may ooze out of the water heater to cause a fire or explosion or both...

2013-03-10 - Fire destroys vacant home, another fire damages vacant home, near each other, in East St. Louis (Illinois):
http://www.kmov.com/news/local/One-house-burned-out-a-nearby-house-damaged-in-Metro-East-fire-196756591.html

Note: East St. Louis is on the downwind side of the Mississippi River, so any hydrogen sulfide accumulating at the river will tend to blow toward East St. Louis when the wind picks up. From the story it doesn't sound like these homes were adjacent but were in the same general area. That's what you might expect to see if a flammable atmospheric gas plume - hydrogen sulfide or methane or both - were blowing through the area...

http://www.news-sentinel.com/article/2013130319985

Quote: "The building housed various offices, a body shop, a glass company, a metal shop, a recycling company and other businesses."

Note: Lots of potential vulnerabilities there: body shop means vehicles may have been present, and vehicles are spontaneously combusting everywhere now; metal shop could mean copper or rusted iron/steel were present and hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper and rusted iron/steel (thus all the piles of metal and scrap vehicles bursting into flame in junkyards and scrapyards around the world); recycling company could mean metals or absorbent flammable materials like paper, cardboard, etc.

Note: Another RV burst into flame at a firefighter's home not long ago, in West Wodonga (Australia), as mentioned in the 2012-12-05 update. I guess firefighters don't know what's going on at all, else they'd park their vehicles farther from their buildings, especially RVs which have some vulnerabilities that other vehicles don't, like pilot lights for propane-powered appliances and large amounts of copper wiring. Two firefighters have dropped dead in the last 4 days too, that I know of. One firefighter collapsed and died in coastal League City (Texas), as mentioned in the 2013-03-06 update, and a firefighter cadet collapsed and died at an accident scene he was responding to in Marietta (Georgia), as mentioned in the 2013-03-07 update...

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it. Hydrogen sulfide is also a heavier-than-air gas and will seek out low-lying areas such as underground facilities, which just happens to be where we put a lot of our copper-using electrical infrastructure. As a consequence, there are a rising number of underground fires much like this one...

2013-03-07 - Massive fire destroys former mill filled with hay in Grover (North Carolina):
http://www.wsoctv.com/news/news/local/firefighters-respond-blaze-old-mill-building/nWkcS/

Note: I highlight the word 'mill' because mills are virtually always built near bodies of flowing water to provide free energy for millwork. That means they are near low-lying areas where a heavier-than-air gas like hydrogen sulfide will accumulate when the wind isn't blowing and from where it will blow when the wind picks up. Hay is an absorbent flammable material and all such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Other such materials include wood, paper, cardboard, generic trash, lumber, pallets, frames for art, furniture, cotton, cloth and clothing, straw, mulch, train ties, utility poles, dried brush, etc.

http://www.yourgv.com/index.php/news/local-news/7462-baby-wipe-fabric-catches-fire-in-tractor-trailer

Note: Fire started when the brakes ignited, then the fire spread to the trailer full of baby wipes fabric. This is exactly what I've been saying: tire rubber absorbs hydrogen sulfide, that makes brake-friction burn hotter, so sometimes brakes ignite, or tires ignite or explode, etc. And the trailer was filled with flammable absorbent materials, and all such materials are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting, or simply combusting easier, with the slightest amount of heat, like that generated by burning brakes. This same scenario is playing out over and over again. This one small facet of the problems we face could ultimately bring down our transportation infrastructure...

http://www.cheshirefire.gov.uk/news-events/incidents/lorrys-brakes-overheat-on-m53

Quote: "Firefighters from Ellesmere Port and Chester were called to a report of a lorry on fire on M53. The incident was reported as being one mile before junction 12, heading towards M55.  The brakes of a lorry had overheated."

Note: This is how some of the vehicular fires involving moving vehicles are starting. Tire rubber is absorbing hydrogen sulfide which causes the heat from brake-friction to be hotter than normal and brakes burn up, tires ignite or explode, fluid lines rupture and leak, and sometimes the entire vehicle goes up in flames. You can sometimes tell which vehicles burn that way by the images; sometimes it's obvious that the fire broke out in the wheel well(s)...

http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2013/mar/08/sale-creek-fire-damages-house-garage-and-van-tune-/

Quote: "...a family member preparing for work at 5 a.m. heard a popping sound coming from the garage."

Note: That popping sound has been heard at a great many fires. That is likely hydrogen sulfide and/or methane igniting, causing little explosions. This fire probably started in that van, most likely around the battery cables, since hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper. In a lot of the non-running vehicle fires, the fire is beginning under the hood. That's right where those thick copper battery cables are. Also, you might want to park your vehicle away from your residence, else this same thing could happen to you...

http://www.wesh.com/news/central-florida/brevard-county/Blaze-jumps-fire-lines-threatens-homes-in-Brevard/-/11788124/19195994/-/8f3mqez/-/index.html

Quote: "At least 14 wildfires were reported in central Florida on Tuesday, including a fast-moving fire that authorities said is still a threat to a neighborhood. On Wednesday, fire crews said a blaze in Port St. John had jumped the fire lines and is threatening houses a half a mile away to the south."

Note: Fire after fire after fire in Florida the last month, mostly near coasts, as predicted. I wonder what fire season will look like when it begins...

http://www.khou.com/news/local/Northeast-Houston-vehicle-recycling-facility-catches-fire-195858871.html

Quote: "When fire crews they arrived they found a 30-foot high pile of crushed cars and tires on fire."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is being absorbed into tires, and hydrogen sulfide can also ignite in the presence of rusted iron/steel. The rust problem was likely the ignition source here then the contaminated tires went up in flames and the fire spread from there. There have been many fires very much like this one at junkyards, salvage yards, wrecking yards, and recycling businesses over the last year and the cause is probably the same in most or all of them...

http://www.nbc-2.com/story/21531079/overnight-fire-damages-port-charlotte-home

Quote: "According to the homeowner, the fire started near the air-conditioning unit outside of the home."

Note: What do air conditioners do? They move heat around but more generally they move the atmosphere around. And they also have copper in them, and hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially 'hot' copper with a current running through it. I've been noticing lots of similar fires involving equipment that manipulates the atmosphere in some way: heating units, air conditioners, ventilation shafts like the one that erupted in flame at the State Department in coastal Washington DC and injured 3 people, as mentioned in the 2012-11-24 update. It appears that such equipment is going to be increasingly fire-prone going forward...

Quote: "A truck reportedly pulled up to a Sunshine Skyway bridge toll plaza Tuesday with a tire on fire."

Note: Tire rubber is semi-absorbent and is absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, most likely hydrogen sulfide since it's a heavier-than-air gas and tires sit on the ground. Then when brakes are applied the brake-friction generates more heat than normal (since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot) and then bad things happen: tires ignite or explode, brakes burn up, hydraulic lines and power steering lines and brake lines rupture, and sometimes the entire vehicle goes up in flames. This area is also downwind of the dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, which are surely pluming hydrogen sulfide now...

http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/Trees-Catch-Fire-in-Field-in-Miami-195521911.html

Note: Not a huge fire or anything, but this is a sign of things to come. Not only is this not the first time trees have spontaneously combusted, but there are now 500 million dead trees in Texas alone which died from drought and have been drying out for going on a year now. Those could begin spontaneously combusting en masse anytime now, so this summer's fire season may be quite a show...

2013-03-05 - Fire breaks out at high-rise building under construction at Temple University in Philadelphia (Pennsylvania):
http://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2013/03/05/another-fire-hits-high-rise-dorm-under-construction-at-temple-u/

Note: This is the sixth fire there in the last month. Buildings under construction are much more vulnerable to atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and methane than completed well-sealed occupied buildings, and that's especially true when they're in the framing stage with all that wood open to the air...

http://www.nbc11news.com/home/headlines/Firefighters-knock-down-structure-fire-on-Grand-Ave-195442711.html

Quote: "At this point, fire officials believe the blaze started outside the home, but are unsure what caused it."

Note: He may have had some wood pallets, dried brush, exposed copper or rusty iron near the home. Absorbent materials (like wood, paper, cloth, etc) are absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane and spontaneously combusting. Hydrogen sulfide is also reactive with copper (especially with a charge running through it) and rusty iron/steel. The house itself may have had some exposed wood too, so it's also possible the house spontaneously combusted all by itself...

2013-03-05 - Two more vacant homes burn down in Virginia's Eastern Shore region:

http://www.wvec.com/news/local/Three-fires-on-Eastern-Shore-this-weekend-two-confirmed-arsons-194704631.html

Note: So, about 60 fires at vacant structures in this area since mid-November 2012, and still, no witnesses, no fingerprints, no surveillance footage, no leads, no motives, but they still think these are all arson? Why do they think these are arson anyway? They never explain that. Is it because there's evidence of accelerants, or because these buildings have no power or electricity? Because if that's their only reason then A) hydrogen sulfide and methane are accelerants; and B) once those gases absorb into stuff, spontaneous combustion can occur, and hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel and copper; and C) there are nearly 4,000 square miles of methane hydrate deposits blowing their highly flammable load off the coast there...

Quote: "She said Schell’s son heard a popping noise before smelling smoke."

Note: There's that popping sound again. That's probably hydrogen sulfide and/or methane gas igniting in a small explosion. When the gas plumes are a little bigger then the explosions may sound like - and be mistaken for - fireworks or gunfire. When they're REALLY big pockets of gas then you get those thunderous house-shaking explosions that people are hearing and feeling around the world...

http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2013/03/mysterious_explosion_sounds_al.html

Quote: "It comes unannounced. It shakes the walls and the floors and freaks out the pets.
People who have experienced it all describe it the same way. 'Explosions,' said Juan Lara, a 67-year-old man who lives near Center Road and Davison Road. Lara and others said it's been happening off and on for about a year. It usually happens in the afternoon, maybe once every few weeks. But, lately, it's more frequent."

Note: These explosions being heard and felt around the world are very likely atmospheric hydrogen sulfide and/or methane plumes igniting and detonating. When they explode high in the sky then they are accompanied by a flash of light. When they explode nearer the ground then people may not see the flash of light, but the shaking of the ground and homes nearby may be more intense. Eventually these explosions may equal the destructive force of small thermonuclear weapons, like the Hiroshima blast but minus the radiation...

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865574741/Water-heater-starts-horse-barn-fire.html

Note: Lots of water heater-related fires lately. One reason for that is that they have pilot lights, so when any flammable hydrogen sulfide and/or methane accumulates near one, fire breaks out. Another reason is that hydrogen sulfide is water soluble and it is getting into the water supply, so even if the building is 100% airtight, the gas can still infiltrate the building via the water supply then evaporate out near water heaters, which have that pilot light burning right there to cause ignition once enough gas accumulates...

Note: When I say 'unoccupied' I mean someone lives there (or works there if it's a business), but nobody was there at the time. When I use the term 'vacant' I mean that nobody lives or works there at all. So in this case the fire broke out while the occupants were away somewhere...

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-03-03/mysterious-light-ignites-fire-in-tasmania/4550142

Quote: "Early Saturday morning police and fire crews received calls from concerned residents in Carnegie Street at Claremont, who reported seeing a bright light igniting a fire in a nearby paddock."

Note: That may have been an atmospheric gas plume - hydrogen sulfide or methane or both - igniting as the plume reached the ground, then burning upward (what they call 'flashback'). Or it may have ignited in the sky above via static electricity or lightning and burned down through a tendril of gas that had extended to the ground...

2013-03-02 - Massive pile of around 200 recycled cars bursts into flame in suburb of coastal Perth (Australia):

http://bigpondnews.com/articles/National-Regional/2013/03/03/Health_fears_over_car_fire_at_factory_850926.html

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with rusty iron/steel, no flame or spark needed for ignition. There have been many fires like this, some just 'piles of metal' igniting. There is no other rational explanation for piles of metal igniting. They say this fire involved 'around' 200 vehicles. The current record for most vehicles burning stands at 200, which were RVs, boats and collector cars, which burned up in a huge fire at a storage facility in Mishawaka (Indiana), as mentioned in the 2013-02-11 update, so that record still stands...

http://www.wtva.com/news/local/story/Tanker-truck-fire-causes-Highway-78-shutdown/sSL6DrCW7kqw9hvdGO7J6w.cspx

Note: This fire began with the tires igniting and/or exploding. As mentioned, tire rubber is somewhat absorbent and it is absorbing hydrogen sulfide and/or methane, probably the former because hydrogen sulfide is a heavier-than-air gas and tires rest on the ground. Then when brakes are applied, the brake-friction produces more heat than it normally would (since hydrogen sulfide burns very hot) and then bad things happen: brakes burn up, tires ignite or explode or both, brake lines or hydraulic lines or power steering lines rupture and leak, the vehicle itself catches fire and burns up, or all of the above. This affects large vehicles the most, like tankers and buses and tractor trailers, because they involve large amounts of mass, which means more brake-friction is required to slow the vehicle and thus there is more chance that this problem will manifest...
