A 43-year-old woman is undergoing surgery after two rocks that she collected at a South County beach ignited in the pocket of her shorts, officials from Orange County Fire Authority said.

The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. Saturday when the woman was standing in her kitchen after returning from an outing to Trestles Beach. She had been home for about an hour when the pocket of her cargo shorts caught fire, OCFA Capt. Marc Stone said.

    I cannot wait to find out what "the rocks" were. Amazing and scarey.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Rocks Found on Beach Mysteriously Catch Fire in Woman's Pocket


A California mother is recovering from second- and third-degree burns after colored rocks her family collected from a southern California beach unexpectedly caught fire while in her shorts pocket.
"We were talking about who was going to pick up the babysitter," Lyn Hiner said today on "Good Morning America." "And all of a sudden something hot on my leg just sort of started to bother me so I started thinking it was a bug bite, so I started slapping it and the next thing I know my pants were on fire."...........................

Kinda odd that she hadnt removed them after being home an hour. Maybe she is a smoked and had a bic lighter in with the rocks and it ruptured. I can't see rocks doing what she described all on thier own.

If it was left there as a trap to harm children, who are usually the ones who gather colored rocks, then I would hope the police are closely investigating it.

Funny that exactly the same happened three days earlier, to a man walking on a beach in Uruguay, 11000 Km. from California, and there are not nuclear plants anywhere over there.

3 days earlier from when?  This thread is from 2012, as your link is in Spanish it sheds no light for me .... and I am a little concerned that a link in Spanish is being provided to an English speaking audience ....

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
