Some time ago, I found a story about a body woman found in a trailer in Brevard County, Florida. Her corpse had been burned. But strangely, the objects in trailer near the corpse did not look burnt. After a long silence, if this latest case of Spontaneous Human Combustion? I'm not understand about 'Spontaneous Human Combustion' ... Is there among you all who can explain it?

Based on its literal meaning, I think that Spontaneous Human Combustion is a term word that is used to describe such cases as the burning of a living human body without an apparent external source of ignition. It could be related to some chemical stuff in the body that leads to the combustion, I guess.

Hi advokatku, Spontaneous Human Combustion or SHC is when a person catches fire and burns with no identifying source of ignition. It can happen in crop storage too where there is a high heat factor present and the heat becomes smoky then there is a tiny spark which smoulders then suddenly, the heat causes and explosion of fire. I guess if one were a student of chemistry & physics then the process might be able to be explained and understood. For many though it is a mysterious phenomenom.

Something in or on the body caused the fire as opposed to the body being set on fire by some external thing.
