Piezoelectric Fire in Mpumalanga, South Africa

The fire that caused damage estimated at R3million at the Dr JS Moroka municipality in Mpumalanga on Monday is still shrouded in mystery.
Authorities at the Siyabuswa-based municipality say they are still baffled by the blaze, which was centered on the finance offices of the council.
"The fire started at about 5am on Monday and we are still wondering who would do this and for what," acting municipal manager Benjamin Mabena said.
He said it would appear that the financial archives of the municipality were targeted.
Allegations of corruption and so-called "tenderpreneurship" have long been common practice at the municipality.
Also the political infighting in the council, which led to the suspension of the former municipal manager Monica Mathebula in April last year, and subsequent arson attack on her home shortly thereafter in June, leaves many in no doubt that something is seriously amiss in the municipality.
Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Captain Leonard Hlathi said the cause of the fire was not yet known and investigations were under way.
Simphiwe Kunene, the provincial cooperative governance spokesperson, declined to speculate on the incident.
Mpumalanga DA leader Anthony Benadie called on the police to treat the investigation around the fire with urgency.
These unusual fires are being caused all over the world by an unrecognized force: ultra-low frequency sound, far below the audible level of most humans. This infrasonic influence is building strong electrical currents in the metal objects like wheel-barrows, door-knockers and copper electrical wiring in the walls of homes, which then become hot enough to ignite the plastic sheathing surrounding the wires. In other cases, heated wires ignite bed mattresses and metal hangers ignite clothing.
The infrasound which is now being focused onto the Mpumalanga, South Africa vicinity is being transduced by the Orion pyramids of present-day Giza, Egypt, which act as a nonlinear lensing system for resonantly balancing the geomagnetic fields of Earth as stimulated by coronal mass ejections from the increasingly active sun.
Mpumalanga, South Africa (29.81°S 30.61°E) is 4,111 miles from Giza, or 16.5%of the Earth's mean circumference distance (of 24,892 miles). Other related events have taken their toll on affected areas in South Africa, some very close to this same 16.5% distance from Giza, including Bloemfontein, Mapuve, Bodibe and Hopewell.
The cases have become so severe that spontaneous combustion of objects by piezoelectric induction has been recurring in spates - in areas such as Tenerife, Babura, Abuja, Bauchi, Jos, Omukondo, Onakaheke, Tsholotsho, Lalapansi, Goodhope, Landovica, Longford, Dublin, Hull, Egham, Wisbech, Glasgow, Messina, Peschici, Berici, across northern Greece, Ratria, Kakori, Mumbai, Kolkata, Charajpura, Thiruvananthapuram, Kishtwar, Rangrik, Kota Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Santo Tomas, Rockhampton, Adelaide, Eaglehawk, Sydney, Georgetown, La Pampa, Melipilla, and in the US in Seattle, Soudan SP, Minneapolis, New Ulm, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Anderson, Homosassa, San Mateo, Vallejo, San Francisco, Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara, Clovis, Calaveras, Haverhill, Peabody, Brentwood and New York City.
