Wet Charcoal. Again. Yep. Again.

Well we finally went and did it. We really really wanted to read the paper presented at the International Association for Fire Safety Science symposium, so we joined the IAFSS! Yep, we are now proud member number 1604! We found some interesting stuff in the paper including a possible source for this myth about storing wet charcoal causing fires due to self heating and spontaneous ignition.

So, we have reorganized the web page, breaking it up into smaller bites. We have added new material from the paper, as well as adding two new references that also assert that the wet charcoal myth is indeed that. And finally, we have added a checklist of these references that you can print out and give to the fire marshal if he tries to blame a house fire on wet charcoal.

You can read all about it here: The Myth About Storing Wet Charcoal.
