6.0's burn down

From cruising around on the internet I've seen a lot of 6.0's have caught on fire. Does anyone now what would cause the 6.0's to go up in flames? I've probably seen about 15 different trucks that have burned down. The only other reason I could think of a 6.0 catching fire is if the 6.0 blew up and Ford wouldn't warranty it so the owner maybe thought insurance claim.

In the mining world, usually when a truck burns down, it's caused by a ruptured oil line spraying on the hot turbo.......I don't know but maybe a possibility with these things?

Cruise control was causing a fire hazard on some early 2000 models.
