This is a well reasearched field, where people just catch on fire. There are several dozen cases of this happening, the first around 1750. Sometimes, the victim's clothing was not burned, yet the body is burned. One event in the 1980's in London said that a woman burst into flames. She was shooting fire out of her mouth like a dragon. The woman eventually died from her injuries. There are many ideas on this: like the human body acting like a candle.

This is similar to an event that happened in Oden, Indiana. A family discovered dozens of fires in the home, some that seemed impossible. A wall calendar burst into flames. A book was burning on the inside, but untouched on the outside. A mattress had caught fire one the inside without being torn open in anyway. Eventually, the family moved away, and the fires have never been seen again.

What you've done here is mix oranges & apples, Kill46. Spontaneous Human Combustion is a lot different than fires appearing randomly in a house or a building.

The latter have also been researched by paranormal people, and they've found that these kind of arbitrary building fires can be due to shorts in wiring, a poltergeist, or by an angry child with uncanny powers.

But the spontaneous Human Combustion is rare, yet well-documented. For reasons unknown, the body core in a small amount of people world-wide, over-heats... and has from time-to-time erupted first as smoke coming from under someone's clothing with a putrid scent, and if it's not doused immediately with water and the person doesn't drink something cold, can ignite first the clothing and then the flesh. It's still not known why some people have experienced this. In fact, many doctors attribute it to smoking cigarettes (which makes no sense, since the heat is generated from the inside-out), because they don't know how to deal with cases like these.

I know someone who used to burn holes in the window blinds by just thinking about doing it, when she was a kid, because her heavy-set grandma used to lay on top of her to make her take a nap. But she evidently out-grew the capability when she grew old enough to not be forced to take naps against her will.
