Man Catches Fire During Fairfield Little League Game

Witnesses at a Little League game reported hearing popping in a parking lot before the four-wheel-drive vehicle caught fire around 6:30 p.m., Chief Gary MacNamara said.

Hervey ran onto a field where children were playing baseball, Lussier said.

“He exited and ran toward the crowd for assistance,” she said. The children were 10-12 years old students at Fairfield Woods Middle School and Jennings Elementary School, she said.

Two coaches helped him, MacNamara said.

So, uh, who wants ice cream?

Dozens of people spontaneously combust each year. It's just not really widely reported.

The fire started in the passenger compartment of the Tahoe, Lussier said. But investigators don't know exactly how it started, she said.

Hope the dude recovers OK. Strange car fire, no? Cigarettes and booze? Most car fires are fuel or motor oil related.

Dozens of people spontaneously combust trying to light their own farts each year, then claim it was spontaneous. It's just not really widely reported.

It's a real headline - I used the headline from the H1 tag on the webpage. Click TFA and see for yourself.
