I might suggest that some of these spontaneous combustion incidents may the result of extreme metabolic states. For example, ketoacidosis, a diabetic state, causes the release of ketones of which the highly flammable acetone is the simplest. Dieting and alcoholic states can also yield acetone. Add a static spark or flame and there is combustion.
