Spontaneous human combustion (SHC) is the alleged process of a human body catching fire as a result of heat generated by internal chemical action. While no one has ever witnessed SHC, several deaths involving fire have been attributed to SHC by investigators and storytellers.

Few cases have been documented, many have been ruled as arson or fire related incidents. While it only occurs in about 1 out of One Million people, this site will attempt to discover the truth, and myth about this phenomenon.One 17th century tale, however, claims that a German man self-ignited due to his having drunk an excessive amount of brandy. If drinking a great quantity of brandy caused self-combustion, there should be many more cases to study than this isolated report from Germany.
