Quote: "Authorities said about 30 tractor-trailers, as well as fuel and propane tanks, burned. Several vehicles parked on the other side of a fence also caught fire."

Quote: "Among the vehicles that affected were tow trucks, box trucks, 18-wheelers and at least one boat. Officials have not specified exactly how many vehicles were affected, but according to reports, possibly two dozen cars and about 10 or 11 tractor trailers were destroyed."

Note: About 6 miles from the coast. From what I could see, the latter quote is more accurate. Not 30 big rigs, but more like 10 or so, plus a bunch of other trucks and semi trailers, plus many smaller vehicles - lots of cars, SUVs, at least one minibus. Didn't see the boat but the smoke blotted out visibility pretty quickly, so I'll take their word on that. These are the 242nd, 243rd and 244th boats/ships to burn/explode in 2017, and these are the 568th through 577th tractors/tankers/semis to burn/explode in 2017...

2017-04-09 - RV trailer bursts into flame at 1:16 AM while parked next to home that has itself burned twice, in Grande Prairie (Canada), nobody there:
http://www.dailyheraldtribune.com/2017/04/09/rv-fire-extinguished-sunday
http://www.mygrandeprairienow.com/26818/rv-next-twice-burned-house-catches-fire/
http://www.canadanews.press/2017/04/09/sunday-rv-fire-under-investigation-alberta-news/

Quote: "The RV was parked in the backyard of a home that is next door to a home under construction, which burned down for the second time last week. Regarding that incident, the fire department confirmed the home had been on fire for the second time in less than a year; the first being in August 2016."

Note: So their home burned down, and they fixed it back up. Now it just burned down again last week, and they moved into this RV trailer to live in while they fix their house up again. And now their RV trailer went up in flames. So now what? Live in a cardboard box while they fix the RV trailer, so that they have some place to live while they fix the house? The cardboard box might burst into flame too. And even if they eventually get the house liveable again, they're not doing anything to protect it from the atmospheric problem, so it'll burn again anyway...

http://megayachtnews.com/2017/04/two-fires-port-forum-barcelona/

Quote: "A fire started the morning of April 9th at the Port Forum in Barcelona. The fire sank six yachts and damaged four others, all ranging from 19 meters (62 feet) to 23 meters (75 feet) in length, according to reports."

Quote: "A significant fire this morning led to the sinking of several yachts at Port Forum in Barcelona. Just hours later, a second fire in the same area caused two more yachts to sink."

Note: So maybe more than ten yachts burned combined, from both fires, but I'll just leave it at ten to be conservative...

Quote: "Over a dozen vehicles were charred as fires broke out at two separate places in Shahdara area of the national capital on Sunday. A private tourist bus and a mini bus were gutted after a fire broke out in the former, in east Delhi’s Geeta Colony on Sunday morning."

Quote: "In another incident, five cars, three tempos and three handcarts were burnt in a fire that broke out this afternoon in an open area in Gandhi Nagar area. The fire broke out around 3.45 PM, apparently in the pile of logs kept near the parked vehicles, a senior police officer said."

Note: When a car ignites some gas blowing through, that gas may ignite stuff NEAR the car, so anything that's flammable that's near a vehicle nowadays can go up in flames. Stuff that's adsorbent and flammable is also bursting into flame all by itself here and there now too though, like that pile of logs (not to mention people's clothing, as with the various people who've burst into flame). This is the 279th bus to burn in 2017...

http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/2017/04/15/famous-madison-county-cedar-covered-bridge-destroyed-by-fire-winterset-iowa/100497976/

Quote: "There was no electricity or light source at the bridge and no severe weather or lightning in the area, so the fire will be investigated as arson, Madison County Sheriff Jason Barnes said."

Note: I'd suspect arson too if I didn't have a clue what was happening on this planet, but having seen piles of wood, trees, baled paper, cardboard and pallets burst into flame, there's obviously no reason a bridge made of wood and nails couldn't do the same thing. This bridge goes over Cedar Creek, just east (downwind) of Cedar Lake. The wee hours are when the atmosphere cools and contracts, which will push any methane and/or hydrogen sulfide in the air above closer to the ground, making fires, explosions and animals and people sickening and/or dying more common during those hours...
