It could also be caused by a discarded glass bottle.

...hope they get a handle on this - that has potential to get ugly really fast for a lot of people up Goudie/SunValley/Huckleberry...surprised with an evac order they're detouring traffic up through that area...huge hassle to shut the highway down but all that additional traffic will not help get those people - especially all the livestock up there - out easily...good luck to the fire crews and residents...
