(Fox2 Detroit)   It sucks when your house catches fire. It sucks even more when it catches fire twice in 30 days. At least it won't happen a third time, by the looks of it   (fox2detroit.com) divider line

Is there a swamp nearby per chance?

Are sinkholes prevalent in the area?

"Most of the bungalow style roof collapsed during the fire but firefighters were able to get a lot of water on the fire quickly."

At least the rubble was soaking wet when it collapsed into a pile.

It was at that very moment that Fred realized his definition of "self-lighting"  might need improvement...

Two possibilities, damaged wiring from the first fire caused the second, the other is that insurance company was being a PITA about the damage from the first one and the homeowner decided to make it an easy calculation of full value.

Hypergolic mixtures are technically self-lighting.

Also the article's reference to "heavy fire" coming out of the roof seems a bit odd.  If it was heavy fire wouldn't it be coming out of the windows and doors because it sinks instead of rises?

I thought heavy fire came out of machine guns and mortars and such.

Ah that's true.  I guess that explains why their house caught fire twice in a month if they're unsafely storing ordnance in the attic.

an extension cord got loose and caught fire in my house, but i put it out, it was no big, just a blackened area size of my hand.

my sister called the FD, had three of them in here, then she opens up a claim that ended up costing $20k.
