    Just for reference, according to CalFire data, of the 20 largest wildfires in CA history: 1 was caused by arson, 6 were "human related (camp fires/stupidity, etc), 7 by lightening, 3 powerlines (high winds), 2 undetermined, and 1 vehicle caused.

    For example, the largest CA wildfire (the 273,246 acre Cedar fire) was caused by a lost inexperienced hunter who built a poorly considered signal fire in the hope of being rescued. He was found, while 14 others died.
