     I have seen two fires started from the stove with a pump-up canister and little dish of fuel below the fire.  The two backpackers were different people on two different hikes.  Fortunately they were small fires and put out quickly.  I'll stick with my Jet Boil.  Lady Pegasus

Query: are there ANY data (not anecdotes about spilling cat food can
stoves) which indicate that alcohol stoves are more likely to start a
wildfire than other kinds of stoves? White gas stoves, with their priming
pans, high pressure and many potential leak points, have always seemed to
me to be far more dangerous.
