Read the article linked above. It'* a direct quote from there.

Investigators initially said the fire was started by the torch itself.

"You torch stuff all the time," said Cameron, who stressed that Dingler did nothing wrong. "It'* a fluke."

HOLY **** I saw this fire!! Monday heading back home from TO on a bus I saw a massive blaze to my right just before 81 * split into 17 W. I could see the smoke well before I reached it and knew something was wrong. While driving past I could see the fire was huge and enveloping trees.

It wasn't just a picture, that'* a screenshot of the video! I was watching it thinking, "maybe my bus is in there." Sure enough, it then zipped by on the highway!
