2014-09-29 - Landfill still burning in Bridgeton (Missouri), authorities fear to do anything because of birds:
http://article.wn.com/view/2014/09/30/Looking_for_intelligent_decisions_to_fight_landfill_fire/
http://www.stltoday.com/news/opinion/mailbag/looking-for-intelligent-decisions-to-fight-landfill-fire/article_f56c661c-0291-5a57-8e83-d3c0c81ad0cd.html

Note: This landfill has been burning for a while. Right next to it, in another landfill, is radioactive waste illegally dumped there, from the Manhattan Project. Experts want to dig a trench and build a barrier, but now the authorities are saying that digging up the landfill might attract birds, which could cause problems with planes at Lambert Airport. Uh, so what? If this fire hits that radioactive waste then the airport (and a lot of the surrounding area) might be rendered uninhabitable for a thousand years. That might just disrupt plane flights too, like permanently! Who put all the crazy people in charge around here?! Pardon me while I go facepalm myself...

Elder, 80, of Camano Island was killed and another man was critically injured after a small plane went down in the Getchell area. Elder was a passenger."

Note: Another parking lot of vehicles burning up. All vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parked or not. They need not even have an engine or a battery or a fuel tank. All that's needed is some rusty iron/steel on the frame and something flammable nearby, which can be anything: brush, fabric and upholstery, tires, trash, whatever. There has been a rising number of incidents just like this: cars burning at entertainment venues, at salvage yards, at schools, at stores, in parking garages, on car-haulers, you name it...

http://www.kcrg.com/subject/news/university-of-iowa-chemistry-building-blaze-causes-over-100000-in-damage-20140925

Note: A similar fire just burned a chemistry lab at 1:15 AM at a high school in Austin (Texas), mentioned in the 2014-09-23 update. Hydrogen sulfide is explosively flammable and it is reactive with numerous chemicals, many of them likely to be found in chemistry labs at schools. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and people and animals sickening and dying more common during those hours...

2014-09-25 - Semi tractor bursts into flame on I-70 in Fairmont City (Illinois):
http://www.ksdk.com/story/news/local/illinois/2014/09/25/truck-catches-fire-on-i-70-in-illinois/16209567/

Note: Fairmont City is located on the eastern (downwind) banks of the Mississippi River, just east of St. Louis (Missouri). This is the fourth vehicle fire in an interesting sequence of fires that has played out over four days. First, a tractor trailer burst into flame on I-70 near Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Charles (Missouri), mentioned in the 2014-09-22 update. The next day, a bit further east, nine cars went up in flames while parked at Maryville University in St. Louis (Missouri), about 15 miles west of the Mississippi River, mentioned in the 2014-09-23 update. The next day, 10 semi trailers were destroyed by fire while parked at a business in St. Louis (Missouri), very close to the Mississippi River, mentioned in the 2014-09-24 update. And now, just a bit east of the Mississippi River in Fairmont City, this semi tractor burst into flame, on I-70 again. Winds tend to blow west-to-east because of the rotation of the Earth, and these four fires happened west-to-east over four days...

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to a single car, and investigators left the scene around 3 a.m. Battalion Chief Mark Schuman says firefighters got another call about a fire at the same location just before 4 a.m. When firefighters arrived, there was heavy fire coming from inside of a garage at the repair shop."

Note: So the first fire was from a car that burst into flame while parked in the shop. Second fire, who knows, but after both fires this place and everything in it is history...

http://westhawaiitoday.com/news/local-news/blazes-spark-kona-park-and-keauhou-condo

Quote: "A lunchtime brush fire kindled on the beach at the north end of Old Kona Airport Park on Tuesday. Moments later, a vehicle and garage caught fire in Keauhou."

Quote: "Down the shoreline in Keauhou, a column of gray smoke rose and Fire Department radios crackled with news of an apparent car fire that had spread to a home. Leaving the helicopter to soak the Old Kona Airport Park cinders as a precaution against nighttime flareups, some of the firefighters left the scene to respond to Na Hale O Keauhou condominiums, makai of Keauhou Shopping Center. Sitting on a bench up the street from her smoldering home, Suzanne Bond listened as property manager Christy Hinds talked her through the insurance process. 'I just don’t understand what could have caused this,' Bond said."

Note: Very similar to the two boats that burst into flame in separate marinas within 3 minutes in coastal Washington DC, mentioned in the 2014-02-11 update. Or the SUV that burst into flame at the same time as a dimmer switch burst into flame at the home next door, at 3:30 AM, in Stuttgart (Arkansas), mentioned in the 2013-02-05 update. The beach fire was probably ignited by some rusty iron/steel laying around, like from a previous beachside pallet bonfire or whatever...

The day before that, a tractor trailer burst into flame on I-70 near Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Charles (Missouri), mentioned in the 2014-09-22 update. After the Maryville University fire, I thought to myself that if that west-to-east progression (which is how winds generally blow) continued another day then some kind of vehicle fire might occur in St. Louis farther west of that university and closer to the Mississippi River, and here it is...

Since all vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at anytime, parked or not, and since parking vehicles next to each other augments the chances that a fire consumes many or all of the vehicles when ANY of them ignites, there have been a rising number of incidents like this, and there will be many more as the atmospheric contamination intensifies. Park a vehicle near anything you don't want to see burning at your own risk...

Quote: "According to the state Fire Marshal’s Office, the fire started in a Jaguar and extended to 18 other vehicles including Land Rovers, Range Rovers, Jeeps and Jaguars. The damage is estimated at $500,000."

Quote: "When police responded eight cars were burning and by the time the blaze was extinguished 14 vehicles had been heavily damaged or destroyed and another five had minor damage. 'As you can see the cars are parked very close to one another so the fire would spread very quickly from one to the next,' Sudbury Fire Chief William Miles said."

Note: As predicted some time ago, entire parking lots of vehicles are going to burn, and here's one example, although this isn't the first such incident and it definitely won't be the last. All vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parked or not, so the more vehicles there are that are parked in close proximity, the greater the chance that fire breaks out and burns some or all of them...

Note: They haven't caught anyone? Shocking! No, not really. They haven't eliminated accidental causes for any of those fires, like hydrogen sulfide's reactivity with rust or electrified copper, so maybe they haven't caught anyone because there isn't anyone to catch...

2014-09-20 - RV trailer bursts into flame at 1:30 AM while parked at home in Seaford Meadows (Australia), near the coast:

Quote: "Crime Scene examiners believe an accelerant was used to start the fire."

Note: Anyone see anybody? Nope. Any surveillance footage, motive, anything at all? Nope. This is the same exact mistake cops made when three patrol cars went up in flames in the wee hours while parked at a police station in Norwich (Vermont), mentioned in the 2012-11-22 update. Initially they said that was arson too and that accelerants were involved, then they changed their story and said it was accidental, probably after reviewing surveillance footage which showed the cars simply bursting into flame. They were correct about accelerants being involved though: both methane and hydrogen sulfide are highly flammable, which means they are accelerants. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any hydrogen sulfide or methane in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and people and animals sickening and/or dropping dead more common during those hours. This area is right near the coast. I would have thought fire investigators would have smartened up by now but obviously not...

http://www.norwichbulletin.com/article/20140919/NEWS/140919410
http://www.norwichbulletin.com/article/20140919/NEWS/140919424

Quote: "Neighbor Thomas Fortette said there have only been four fires - including today's - in the 20 years he's lived in the mobile home park."

Note: Another fire erupted in this same trailer park at 3:22 AM which destroyed a different mobile home. That fire was blamed on 'electrical malfunction' with a night light. Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper, thus all the 'electrical fires' igniting parked vehicles and the various underground electrical explosions and fires hitting cities around the world. This sequence of two fires sounds a whole lot an incident where an SUV burst into flame while parked at one home and a dimmer switch burst into flame at the same time at the house next door, at 3:30 AM, in Stuttgart (Arkansas), mentioned in the 2013-02-05 update. Was that just a one-in-a-trillion coincidence, that a parked SUV burst into flame at the same time a dimmer switch burst into flame at the house next door? No way was that a coincidence, and the two fires at this trailer park were not a coincidence either...

Quote: "Actor Jackson Rathbone tweeted that he was on the flight with his wife and child and wrote, 'Our right engine exploded and our cabin filled with smoke.' The smoke was so thick it was difficult to see the person next to them, two passengers told KCAL."

Quote: "Cellphone video shows the terrifying moments just 10 minutes into the flight. White smoke filled the cabin as passengers tried to stay calm while putting on oxygen masks. 'It was pretty nerve-wracking, man, you couldn't see really in front of you, the entire plane filled with smoke all the way, lot of loud banging,' said passenger Shaun Mahoney."

Note: A passenger plane engine just burst into flame two days prior, shortly after takeoff, and made an emergency landing in coastal Barcelona (Spain), mentioned in the 2014-09-16 update. Increasing numbers of planes are coming down smoking or on fire now, as expected with the atmosphere being increasingly contaminated by flammable gases. If you've got some flying to do, you might wanna get 'er done sooner rather than later because the problem is just going to continue to get worse as time goes on...

Note: I'm sure they do believe it was deliberate. If I was totally oblivious of all the parked vehicles spontaneously igniting regularly around the planet, I'd probably think the same thing. In any case, oblivious fire investigators aside, I don't see any evidence of people being involved in starting this fire, so there's no reason to think this was arson...

Quote: "The fire department says that witnesses have told them there was an odor of natural gas in the air, and Missouri Gas Energy was at the scene investigating Wednesday night."

Quote: "After each call, crews responded with equipment that can detect natural gas in the air, soil and sewers. 'Each time we got a zero reading for natural gas,' Jenny Gobble, a spokeswoman for Laclede Group Inc., said in a written statement. Laclede is MGE’s parent company."

Quote: "'Tests performed on the natural gas pipeline leading to the house showed no leaks,' she said. 'Early indications show that this explosion does not appear to be related to the malfunction of any MGE equipment.' Crews also checked a six-house radius Thursday for any sign of natural gas leaks and found none, Gobble said."

Quote: "'It blew out the windows next to the house next door. The lady got hurt as she was watching a movie,' he said. He said the woman couldn't remember anything, and she had glass in her arm and leg."

Note: Natural gas is odorless so they add mercaptan to it, which smells like 'rotten eggs'. So people in the area smelled a 'rotten egg' odor and assumed it was natural gas. The gas people checked stuff out, found no problems with any natural gas lines in the area and detected none in the air or soil either. That 'rotten egg' odor that wasn't natural gas had to be explosively flammable hydrogen sulfide, probably mixed with methane. Hydrogen sulfide is neurotoxic and can damage brains resulting in memory loss, confusion, disorientation, among other things. Kansas City is located at the confluence of the Kansas River and the Missouri River...

2014-09-17 - Person found dead in burning car in Parrakie (Australia), near the coast:
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-09-17/body-found-in-burnt-out-car-in-sa/5750022

Quote: "It appears as though an accelerant has been used on the car, so that would be the cause of the fire."

Note: Both hydrogen sulfide and methane are accelerants. Three police cars went up in flames at a police station in Norwich (Vermont) and they too detected an accelerant had been used. They assumed arson at first but then retracted that, presumably because police stations have surveillance video and they saw those vehicles go up in flames on their own. That event was mentioned in the 2012-11-22 update. So the presence of an accelerant doesn't really say a whole lot these days. They should hire more observant investigators in Australia, and everywhere for that matter, people who pay attention to the world around them, and preferably before we're all dead...

2014-09-16 - Passenger plane engine(s) bursts into flame shortly after takeoff, plane lands in coastal Barcelona (Spain):
http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/site/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=VIV-20140916-45304-USA

Quote: "Terrified passengers on a Transaero Airlines flight bound for Moscow, sat petrified as they witnessed flames burst out of the plane's engines in mid-air, just after the plane had taken off. A woman passenger filmed the horrific moment just after take-off, from her window seat. The footage, filmed from her video camera, shows 59 seconds of the flames as they caught light. The woman said that the 'flight began to shake, just after take-off' and that the plane was forced to return quickly and land at Barcelona Airport."

Note: Another plane catching fire, which is getting to be pretty regular now. Also, MULTIPLE engines ignited? That would indicate a problem not with an engine but a problem common to all of the engines, like flammable gas in the atmosphere...
