Do search on Drax Fire and there is a daily telegraph article for all to read.

Fire in the pellet to conveyor system, apparantly.

Woody biomass is quite combustible. Mind you so is coal dust,  Remember training at Willington Power Station in 1986. There were heaps of ash sat upon pipework in the coal mill bay, ( Leaked pulverised coal dust that had settled and spontaneously ignited and burned.)
