http://kobi5.com/news/local-news/item/elderly-man-sustains-critical-burns-after-car-fire-on-i-5.html#.Vay8qPlVhBc

Quote: "Oregon State Police say it happened at around two o'clock, a blue Mercury somehow caught fire with an 83-year old man inside and his two dogs. OSP says the man could not get out of his car and sustained critical burns. His two dogs did not make it out alive. Fire district three helped put out the fire."

Note: Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with electrified copper. Such fires may disable the electrical system and if you have power locks and windows and your doors are locked and your windows are rolled up then you can get trapped inside a burning car. It seems wise these days to keep something handy in your vehicle with which to cut seatbelts and break out windows. You may have only seconds to act before lack of oxygen knocks you unconscious and then you're dead unless somebody outside the vehicle acts quickly and saves you...

Quote: "Venkappa, a septuagenarian, said, 'We are scared. The gas is coming out non-stop. Will it cause a major fire? Are our lives at risk?' Venkatesh, member of Mantapa gram panchayat, said that after news of the gas escaping from the fissures spread, several residents rushed to the quarry pit."

Quote: "On Monday morning, residents of Lakshmipura in Anekal taluk were shocked to find stagnant water on the streets boiling and gas emanating from the ground, catching fire at many places. Experts said the fire was due to methane gas emission from the nearby Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) landfill site."

2015-07-22 - Mysterious explosion shakes neighborhood in Madison (Wisconsin):
http://www.channel3000.com/news/Firefighters-investigate-cause-of-explosion-that-shook-entire-neighborhood/34322184

Quote: "Residents on Starr Grass Drive reported hearing a loud explosion around 3:30 p.m., officials said. Firefighters found several people examining a street light post when they arrived, according to a release. Crews noticed the area surrounding the post had been burned, but there was no fire, smoke or damage to the pole. MFD crews talked with several witnesses about what they heard, smelled and saw, but no one reported seeing any suspicious activity before the incident."

Note: Very interesting. When I saw the left side of the White House catch fire in the wee hours in 2011, there were small explosions - 'flashes of light' - occurring around the exterior lights, from gas plumes igniting from the heat of the bulbs. Sounds like this explosion may have been the same thing except the explosion was obviously much larger this time. Eventually these atmospheric explosions may rival the explosion that destroyed Hiroshima, but without any radiation. Responders trained late last year to handle the aftermath of a 10-kiloton explosion in coastal Manhattan (New York), mentioned in the 2014-10-22 update. With 5 trillion pounds of explosively flammable methane dissociating off the East Coast, it's easy to understand why. The estimates were for 100,000 people instantly killed. Two billion-dollar blimps, primary mission to identify air-breathing threats, are now stationed along the East Coast too, mentioned in the 2014-12-21 update...

Note: More electrical infrastructure exploding and/or burning. Keep those flashlights handy! Hydrogen sulfide is reactive with copper, especially electrified copper. Hydrogen sulfide is also a heavier-than-air gas, thus the rise in underground electrical stuff exploding and burning. Some of the larger underground electrical fires have cut power to homes and businesses for many days. As the oceans and seas continue to warm and spew methane, increasing amounts of that methane will be turned into hydrogen sulfide by the ancient anaerobic bacteria and archaea that existed on this planet long before oxygen-using life made its debut. Eventually this problem will wipe out the grid, and it will also kill off most oxygen-using life on the planet, just as has happened in the past...

http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2015/07/hinsdale_man_died_in_house_fir.html

Quote: "One firefighter was taken to the Berkshire Medical Center for treatment of a medical condition."

Note: Once hydrogen sulfide adsorbs onto stuff, especially porous stuff like clothes, mattresses, bedding, wood, paper, cardboard, etc, then once fire breaks out, the smoke itself may contain enough residual hydrogen sulfide to knock you unconscious, kill you, or cause 'medical conditions'. Firefighters show up at these fires and inhale the smoke, so of course they're having problems. Sometimes they just drop dead at the scene of a fire...

http://www.theleafchronicle.com/story/news/local/clarksville/2015/07/26/suspicious-fire-destroys-clarksville-home/30707089/

Note: This sounds very similar to an event where an SUV burst into flame while parked at one home at the same time that an exterior dimmer switch burst into flame at the home next door, at 3:30 AM, in Stuttgart (Arkansas), mentioned in the 2013-02-05 update. So there has to be 'something' causing separate fires sometimes in the same area at the same time. What could that be? It could only be something in the atmosphere. Same thing with the two boats that burst into flame within 3 minutes at separate marinas in coastal Washington DC, mentioned in the 2014-02-11 update. Clearly these multi-events - and there have been others too - are not mere coincidences...

Note: Of course they could be related, by the atmosphere. Same geographic area, same timeframe, same atmosphere. That will be more obvious when it's fifty or a hundred cars and/or homes going up in flames at the same time like this...

Quote: "Fire crews are fighting a blaze at a factory in Seven Hills in the second incident of its kind within three days in Sydney’s west."

Note: From the full hypothesis: "Trash-related facilities such as recycling centers and landfills will burn hard too, as hydrogen sulfide is absorbed into flammable absorbent materials like wood, paper, cardboard, straw, hay, dried brush, generic trash, clothing, cotton, wool." Major international insurers dropped out of the recycling insurance business more than a year ago, mentioned in the 2014-04-04 update. If they'd listened to me a year or two earlier then they might have saved themselves a few hundred million dollars or more. The fires alone were enough to get them moving out of the business though - they didn't need to know WHY recycling facilities had begun going up in flames, just that that was the case...
