Woman's body fat causes crematorium to burn down

The dead fat woman had so much body fat she set the building on fire during her cremation.
As you can see in the photos, firefighters battled the blaze in special breathing kit, but got covered in burnt grease.

Firefighters had trouble extinguishing the blaze due to a thick layer of insulation lining the crematorium's walls.
Austrian officials investigating the fire found that it was caused by the burning body of the 440-pound woman. The obese corpse reportedly led to overheating in the crematorium's filter system, starting the fire.
Recently, fires caused by the burning obese bodies were reported in Germany and Switzerland.
Former Graz city fire chief said special crematoria for obese people should be set up in Austria to deal with the potential dangers of cremating obese bodies.
In Switzerland, there is now a special crematorium for XXL-bodies.
