Spontaneous Combustion

The Fires of Canneto di Caronia: "ROME (Reuters) - A Sicilian town is struggling to work out why dozens of household items from fridge-freezers to furniture keep mysteriously bursting into flames, terrifying locals and sparking theories of demonic intervention.
Since mid-January dozens of electrical goods and pieces of furniture have spontaneously gone up in flames, causing huge damage in Canneto di Caronia, a small town perched on the Mediterranean island's rocky coast.
'I've seen unplugged electrical cables burst into flames with my own eyes, but I just can't explain it,' a local policeman who did not want to be named said Wednesday. 'I've never seen anything like it.' "
