It's also risky to park cars near your residence, since they're going up in flames regularly while parked too, and even if you survive that, you could easily lose your home and everything in it, as many people have...

Quote: "A tractor-trailer on fire caused road closures in Dexter. The Dexter Police Department says crews responded to the fire at 11:50 p.m. and during that time Business 60 and AB were closed. The semi was carrying fertilizer. Investigators don't know what caused the fire."

Note: Also see the garbage truck that burst into flame near a McDonald's in Dexter on this day. Two big trucks going up in flames in Dexter in one day, and Dexter isn't exactly a sprawling metropolis, with a population of less than 8000 people...

Witnesses say workers were digging a well when they hit a natural gas pocket. Seminole Creek Farm owner Scott Seal said three workers with Gentry Drilling Inc. were airlifted to UAB Hospital with burn injuries. A crew from Northwest Alabama Gas is on the scene. General manager Heath Reed said they've never had a situation like this and don't know if they can help."

Quote: "A crew of four men with Gentry Drilling Company from Lawrence County, Tenn. hit a pocket of natural gas while drilling for water near County Road 724, just off of Highway 24. At first the men didn't know they struck the pocket. It wasn't until one tried to weld a cracked control rod and the spark created a fireball."

http://www.wtsp.com/news/local/officer-discusses-saving-woman-from-burning-car/390348820

Quote: "A Spokane Police officer is being credited with saving a woman’s life after pulling her from her burning car Friday night. Officials said the woman called 911 around 10:00 p.m. saying she was trapped in her burning car on North Cannon Street near North Ridgeview Place. She said she was trying to kick out the windows but she couldn’t. Even though this was a fire call, it was also broadcast on police channels and multiple officers from the county and city arrived on scene."

Note: She would've ended up another charred corpse in a burning car if not for the cop who saved her. The fire had knocked out the controls for her locks and windows, so she was trapped. That's happened to many people, and many of them have died, sometimes screaming in agony as they burned to death. It's wise now to carry something with you in your vehicle with which to cut seatbelts and break windows, lest you end up a charred corpse in a burning vehicle yourself...

Quote: "Some of the units had household goods, construction materials, and even a car, the chief said."

Note: That's the problem with these storage places nowadays - since vehicles are now randomly-igniting firebombs that can go off at any time, parked or driven, and since you can't control whether OTHER people park vehicles in THEIR storage units, and since all it takes is ONE vehicle bursting into flame to wipe out an entire storage facility, these places are extremely risky places to store anything you care about...

Quote: "Fire crews responded to a massive fire at Journey Auto and Boat Sales in Richmond on Automotive Lane on Friday. The smoke was visible from the bypass which was shut down in both directions. Police say it has since reopened. The Vice President of Journey Auto and Boat Sales told LEX 18 her husband and daughter heard an explosion and the fire started quickly."

Quote: "The fire destroyed several boats, but did not injure anyone."

Note: Several is more than two, so I'll just call it three to be conservative...

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/human-remains-found-truck-house-180113027.html

Quote: "Human remains were found inside a burnt-out truck in East Walton in Hants County, N.S. early Sunday morning. The truck was parked next to a house that also caught fire late Saturday night. 'The home as far as I understand it is a total loss and the vehicle is as well,' said RCMP Cpl. Jennifer Clarke. Police were called to the scene shortly after midnight after a passerby reported the fire."

Quote: "Clarke also said that it seemed like the fire started in the truck and moved to the house. 'The passerby who reported it, that person told us that the truck was more on fire than the house was when they called,' Clarke said."

Quote: "The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, but Clarke says it doesn't appear to be suspicious."

2017-01-30 - Mysterious explosions and flashes of light regularly occurring around coastal New Orleans (Louisiana):
http://www.wwltv.com/news/local/cause-of-mysterious-booms-across-town-still-isnt-clear-but-some-have-theories/394727865

Quote: "More mysterious 'booms' are being heard around the city, but still there are no answers as to its source. It's been going on for weeks, so you can imagine many are starting to wonder if the mystery will ever be solved."

Quote: "One resident, who wished to be anonymous, has followed each case closely. 'It was about a block or block and a half in that direction and up in the sky for sure, it definitely illuminated the whole area,' he recalled."

Note: Five people dropped dead 'separately' in one day in New Orleans in July last year, mentioned in the 2016-07-05 update. Four people dropped dead 'separately' in one day in New Orleans last May too, mentioned in the 2016-05-20 update. Five children also died in swimming pools in New Orleans between May and July 2016 too, mentioned in the 2016-07-12 update. And now they've recorded 150 recent mysterious explosions in New Orleans, some with flashes of light. I wouldn't be counting on living to a ripe old age in New Orleans if I were living there. That's true of every city, but things are obviously worse in New Orleans than many places...
