My brother learned the hard way that in a power outage do not leave a kerosene lamp on a desk in the same room with a cat.

Katikaze.

So evil they are willing to take their lives to destroy a booze factory.

Gotta be honest, I was expecting the cat to have survived the conflagration with little more than singed whiskers and perhaps some injured pride.

Also, the cat broke a transformer by landing on it? How big was this cat? How fragile was the transformer?

If it broke the transformer, then it was a death trap, waiting to happen.

Porcelain can get brittle as it ages. Not totally surprising, really.... I mean, Mayanmar sounds about ion par with China, probably made out of 60 year old spare parts and held together with duct tape.

The Great Chicago Conflagration of 1871 started the same way.
The cow was just patsy for a very clever kitty.

I've spent the last 10 days or so trying to throw $1000 or more to several local business to remove the population of neighborhood stray/feral cats that decided to take residence under my deck about 2-3 weeks ago.

3 different businesses have all flaked on making this easy $.

fark cats,
and double fark cat owners who let them out of their houses

I stopped burning candles after my cat stuck her face in one and burned off half her whiskers.  I probably didn't need to stop because I think she learned her lesson, but I really don't want to breathe any more carcinogens or risk any fire that I don't have to.

I watched her do it too.  She's all like what's this?  Oooh, it flickers, let me take a closer look.  Yikes!

I would have stopped her, but it happened too fast.

"The fire began when a cat fell on a transformer and destroyed the porcelain bushing insulating the mineral oil used to stabilise[sic] and cool the transformer. The oil and the heat started the fire,"

You don't say.

Decrepit porcelain housing; check.  Flammable fluid encased in that housing; check.  Ignition source just waiting to burn the whole thing down; check.

This was built to fail, the stupid cat was just the 'oh so that's how that happened' part of the story.

"I was burned on my right side from all the hot oil. I didn't feel anything when it first happened," U Win Naing told Eleven Media.
