A cremation gone awry
In 2014 a 500lb person was cremated in Virginia. Apparently crematoria are limited in the size of the body as while this person was being cremated the crematorium itself caught fire because the fat in the body burned at a higher temperature than the crematorium was geared for. The situation was repeated in Ohio recently when an 'extremely obese' person was cremated.
