M. John Fayhee: The carbonated origins of Frisco’s Spontaneous Combustion

Spontaneous praise

I want to thank Krista Driscoll for the flattering story regarding the history of the Spontaneous Combustion community bonfire in Frisco. When Ms. Driscoll was interviewing me via phone, I vaguely remembered that the seed of the idea was germinated over adult beverages at Tuscato. Tom Fricke of KYSL radio told me he thought that seed was germinated over adult beverages at the Blue Spruce. Rick and Judy Amico told me they seem to remember it was the Moose Jaw. What can I say? The idea of a community bonfire in Frisco was born in some bar or, more likely, numerous bars along Main Street.

Its carbonated origins aside, I really want to tip my hat to the town of Frisco for keeping Spontaneous Combustion alive and kicking. The town staff did a great job the other night of providing illumination while protecting public safety. Also: Hats off to Jeff Berino for the fireworks. Also: The beer was good.

I know that Spontaneous Combustion probably is not the most measurably lucrative of Frisco's special events, but, judging from the smiles of the many attendees, I think it is worth the effort the town government puts into it.

Thumbs up to Frisco and may the rest of winter be snowy, pleasurable, profitable and safe.
