I don't know what caused this but I do know you can never be too care and concious about potential hazards, from experience. If u live in an apartment or condo, pay attention not just to your own unit, but also to the common areas. Super hot heating pipes in basement don't get along well with flammable like varnish, cardboard boxes and old Christmas wrapping paper when stupid humans store them so that they are leaning against such pipes. Especially in winter. More ISD checks needed this season. Just sayin'.
