I've had a couple of them leak on me over the years. Once, about 20 years ago, when I was camping on Mount Lassen (luckily we had a spare). Latest one was a couple of years ago; I bought a new canister for my little propane torch, used it once or twice for a total of about 5 or 10 minutes, left it in the tool shed for a few months (disconnected from the torch), and found it completely empty when I needed to fix a hose-bib riser in the backyard one weekend.

How many of those fires involved non-pressurized alcohol stoves?

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
