Note: Elevators are similar to vehicles in the sense that they have motors and brakes, so just like brakes have been igniting on ground vehicles, brakes may ignite on elevators too, then the elevator might fall and burn. It appears that this same sub-problem will affect anything with brakes including elevators, though being inside, elevators should tend to be somewhat less vulnerable than vehicles. Nevertheless, note to self: take the stairs. Heh...
