2016-07-12 - Pile of clothes bursts into flame inside car at the Beaver Creek Tavern on Route 340 in Thorndale (Pennsylvania):
http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2016/07/event-update-for-2016-07-10.html

Quote: "Tom's wife's car somehow caught fire right beside Beaver Creek Tavern on Rt. 340 in Thorndale. She had 3 bags of our old clothing to go to Goodwill and one of them caught fire in the back seat of the car. The owner of Beaver Creek put out the fire with an extinguisher he had on his outdoor dining deck. The fire company only poked around and removed the bags and some junk from the trunk. i'll follow this up if they determine what exactly caused a bag of used clothing sitting on the back seat of a car with the windows open to burst into flame."

Note: Heh, citizen reporting from Pennsylvania Tom in the comments. I suspect most smallish fires like this never get any kind of news coverage at all, so this event was one we'd likely have never even heard about except that it involved a reader of this blog, so I for one am grateful, so thanks! And, of course, I'm very sorry that bad sh#t happened to you, Tom! (But I'm also glad that it wasn't much worse sh#t that happened too.)

http://www.standard.co.uk/news/world/eiffel-tower-police-dismiss-rumour-firework-truck-blaze-is-linked-to-nice-attack-a3296261.html

Quote: "A truck carrying fireworks caught fire next to the Eiffel Tower in Paris just as an attack killed as many as 73 Bastille Day revelers in the French Riviera capital of Nice. The blaze in Paris ignited at the Pont d'IĆ©na bridge over the River Seine due to a 'technical incident,' the Paris Police Prefecture announced on Twitter Thursday night."

2016-07-14 - In separate incidents, pickup truck and car burst into flames on highways near Woodland (California):
http://www.columbian.com/news/2016/jul/14/vehicle-fires-slow-traffic-on-interstate-5-205/

Quote: "Vehicle fires snarled traffic on Interstate 5 and Interstate 205 on Thursday afternoon, the first burning a sedan just south of the northbound Interstate 5 exit to Woodland. Starting around 2:30 p.m., a burning 2000 Dodge Intrepid and emergency responders blocked the right and center lanes. No one was hurt, Washington State Trooper Will Finn said."

2016-07-14 - Dish towels burst into flame at 1:03 AM at hotel in Salisbury (Maryland):
http://www.delmarvanow.com/story/news/local/maryland/2016/07/14/fire-damages-laquinta-salisbury/87074904/

Quote: "The 1:03 a.m. fire triggered an automatic fire alarm and the hotel’s sprinkler system. The fire was caused by spontaneous combustion of dish towels in a kitchen storage area."

Note: If dish towels can spontaneously combust then so can clothes, which surely explains at least some of the people who've mysteriously burst into flame (but not including the people burning to death when their vehicles burst into flame)...
