        Any ideas what happened in  "...a very routine experiment...done
many
        times."
        
        Possibilities:
        1) type of vessel containing the methanol solution ?
        2) wire was still hot and resulted in a catalytic combustion of
the
        methanol when dipped into the solution ?
        3) safety shield being used?
        4) safety goggles being warmed?
        5) safety blanket/fire extinguisher/drench hose or shower
nearby?
        6) methanol container left opened
        ?????
