My that caught fire fast. Wonder what else burns like that?

This is the bizarre moment a bungling factory worker set spools of packaging material on fire ‘out of curiosity’ in China. The employee had just finished arranging sheets of EPE pearl cotton inside the warehouse in Huizhou City, Guangdong province on August 22 when his curiosity - and foolishness - proved the better of him. He was caught on camera bringing a lighter to the flammable material and setting ablaze the pile of wrappers. The fire rapidly spread as the newly made goods were reportedly still covered in combustible butane, which is used during the production of EPE foam. Footage shows the man trying batting at the growing flames using his hands. When that proved ineffective, he hurried outside to call for help. The Guangdong Huizhou Fire Department confirmed the incident in a statement on August 24, with the city’s public security service detaining the suspect. They said an investigation into the incident has been launched.
