Nutella Jar Blamed For Sparking London Housefire


Firefighters in the U.K. capital say sun rays refracted by a Nutella jar likely caused a house fire.



The city's fire brigade says investigators believe the glass jar -- which had been
emptied of the hazelnut spread -- had been placed on a window sill and refracted sunlight, setting blinds alight.
According to a statement posted Tuesday by the brigade, the family was not at home but the blaze killed a dog.

Fire investigator Charlie Pugsley said: "It sounds far-fetched that a jar containing a few rubber bands caused a severe house fire but that's exactly what happened."

The fire happened Feb. 15 in southwest London.culled





Wow!....this might have happened but sounds unbelievable!...Please can someone explain how glass can cause fire?I am sorry but this isn't my area of specialisation!

    2. *Confused*
      Is it the reflected ray of light or what?

  5. So d sun rays hits d jar, it bounces of the jar n is directed to one spot (the blinds) so you have these rays continually pointing to a flammable object. It gets really hot and bursts in flame

    1. I believe it's to do with the refractive index of the glass container.
      This is the same as using a concave lens to focus sun rays on a piece of paper; when the refractive index of the paper is reached, it catches fire. Elementary physics.

  10. Yes it can cause fire.

    I remember an old film where the boy's glasses was used to start fire wen reflected against the sun.

    I think the name of the film is lord of the rings. Not sure though.

  15. Very easy. We used to do it as kids in primary school with a magnifying glass. Glass of certain thickness and properties will concentrate sun rays onto a subject and with enough time, it would ignite. ABC science really
