I don't recall seeing anything like this being reported in non-human animals (or plants for that matter). I know there is mention of seemingly 'spontaneous' forest fires, but I'm not sure those count.
As for the mitochondria explanation, has anyone been able to induce mitochondria to combust and set other adjacent cells on fire in a controlled laboratory environment?
