Apparently it could be a couple of things. Some frost plugs may be improperly installed causing them to pop out, the coolant leaks on to the exhaust, the water evaporates and the glyco starts the fire. The other thing I read is there is a maze of coolant lines behind the engine, any leaks will result in the same as above.
