A cigarette carelessly flung from a car window is always a possibility.

I saw this fire on my way home from San Rafael yesterday, apparently I got through just before the road was closed. There was smoke rising from an area that looked not far from the road. There was also a small fire on Arnold Drive, which I saw just minutes later while on the same drive.
