I've dug up a ton of interesting data, including the fact
that the Sissonville Fire Station, which was located over
a 26" transmission line, was torched to ashes in a hot
accelerated fire while they were doing road construction.
The cause: "an electrical source".
Five days after the fire, Columbia Gas
(the same operator of the Sissonville explosion)
gave the fire department a check for $25,000,
out of the kindness of their hearts (or maybe a guilty conscience?)
It required $1.2M to rebuild the station.
Here's when a 26" had a complete failure Dec 2012:
May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
