In New York ist es so heiß, dass Pferdeäpfel in Flammen aufgehen. Spontaneous Horseshit Combustion, literally. (via Neatorama)
The state Department of Environmental Conservation says it received multiple complaints July 5 about the smell and smoke emanating from a burning pile of horse manure at a property in the town of Throop, in the Finger Lakes region 20 miles west of Syracuse.
The responding officer learned that the owners of a horse stable had been storing the manure in large piles that frequently spontaneously combusted in the excessive heat and dry conditions.
