Infrasound Fires in San Mateo, California

California: Police Investigate Mystery Car Fire

Fire and police officials suspect arson was the cause of a mysterious vehicle fire on a quiet San Mateo street early Wednesday morning.

Just after 5 am, fire officials responded to reports that a Chrysler PT Cruiser was on fire on the 3200 block of Los Prados Street, south of Hillsdale Boulevard and east of U.S. Highway 101.

Though the flames were quelled without much trouble, the case was unusual enough that officials decided to call the fire marshal and police, said John Healy, deputy chief of the San Mateo Fire Department.

Because the fire consumed the outside and cab of the vehicle - which had apparently been parked there for more than a day - rather than its engine, "it was determined to be suspicious," he said.

San Mateo Police Lt. Mike Brunicardi said the case is being inspected but would not comment further because the case is still open.


The unusual characteristics of this fire are similar to spates of fires that have been raging in various parts of the world, all caused by an ultra low-frequency infrasound resonance. In myriad recent cases of this kind, standing waves of infrasound have caused the heating of metals, which then ignite any flammable objects in contact with the metal. In this particular case, the metal of the car doors has ignited the plastic framing instead of any of the engine components or the gas tank. The infrasound standing waves causing these types of fires are focused by the Orion pyramids of Giza, Egypt, which is 7,479 miles from San Mateo, California (37.54N 122.27W). This distance is 30.0% of the Earth's mean circumference distance of 24,892 miles.

This infrasound resonance will be growing erratically in relation to the increasing solar activity and requires the complete evacuation of these focal areas. Other recently affected areas include Lalapansi, Zimbabwe and Mapuve, South Africa.

In various other cases, vibrating cellphones and shavers have spontaneously ignited by this same effect, as reported in Vallejo, California; the Berici Hills of northern Italy and in Messina, Sicily. Other infrasound focal points include Ratria, India; Seattle and Santa Barbara, USA.
