It may have been spontaneous ignition of dry pine needles under the sun, caused by a bottle on the ground or something. It's rare for fires to get seriously out of control with vegetation this far established.

Looking at the pictures it looks like a controlled burn, only the underbrush. If so it did more good than bad.
