    My really weird morning surprise

    Got up this morning and found this in the refrigerator. I have no explanation for this. It is completely baffling. Barb says we will be wondering until we die.

    Maybe I should start paying attention to Ancient Aliens.

    Anyone ever seen or heard of anything like this? I can't stop looking at this in the refrigerator. What started it? Why is there no damage, no soot? It was hot enough to partially cook the eggs that we cracked open.

    That is crazy Brian. Those are just paper cartons right? May be worth sending to the supplier to see if they can help look into the cause. I think I'd make sure there is a smoke alarm in the kitchen at least for the time being too.

    You've got me scratching my head on this one Brian. You don't have any practical joking family or neighbors near by do you? I first suspected microwave energy, then thought about chemical reaction of something that had spilled on the cartons, then I ran out of ideas. That looks scary.

    I had the same thoughts as Ted. Also, might be worth calling the local fire department and talking with them. They may have resources for sending the remains out for testing to see if any chemicals reactions are involved.

    Very bizarre. No idea what might have caused something like that to happen.

    I was talking to my brother and he suggested microwaves as well, but in a refrigerator? I also called the fire department and talked to the chief and he had no ideas. There were 2 other egg cartons in the fridge (we have chickens) and they are fine. The cartons are all clean, nothing spilled on them. When people give us used ones and they are stained they go into the compost. Have you ever tried burning egg cartons? They don't light right up like newspaper. It takes a fair amount of flame to get them going.
    This reminds me of those old pictures of the supposed spontaneous combustion of a man with nothing remaining but a pair of slippers with a burned up foot in one and a charred easy chair in the room; no other damage.
    My sister-in-law suggested I contact Coast to Coast Am and see if they have run into anything like this.
    I'm going to check the refrigerator before I hit the sack. Maybe I should put some slabs of bacon and a couple of raw eggs on a plate in there and have breakfast waiting for me in the morning.

    my only suggestion other than the official ones that i think should be able to help if they would.. is to ask on google and see if you get any hits.. i would press the fire chief for help.. they have contact with a fire marshall that is his job to determine cause of fire..

    Nuclear chickens. Eggs that glow in the dark.

    It's a good thing they were in the refrigerator & used up all the oxygen other wise you could have had a real hot fire.

    Found the answer for you.

    It's all right here. Spontaneously Combustible Eggs. Fairly common as this article shows.

    Anyone in the family smoke? The fire from a cigarette falling into the crevices and smoldering?
