These are called bushfires in Australia, and there are many different causes.Most bushfires are caused by lightning strikes.Bushfires are, unfortunately, also commonly caused by man's activities, whether arson or unintentionally lighting the fires such as by tossing cigarettes out of car windows, or not extinguishing campfires properly.The intensity of bushfires is increased by dry vegetation, often after a period of heatwave, together with strong, gusting winds, and absence of precipitationFaulty power lines are also often a cause. Sparking and arcing from these powerlines easily ignites into bushfires.
In the u.s. lightning strikes about 40 million times in one year.

Australia does not have "forest fires": it has bushfires, which are quite different, as the native plants are different, so the nature of the fire differs also.There are many different causes of bushfires, and often it is not known who causes em. more often than not, they are not caused by anyone. Most bushfires are caused by lightning strikes.Having said that, however, bushfires are unfortunately also commonly caused by man's activities, whether arson or unintentionally lighting the fires such as by tossing cigarettes out of car windows, or not extinguishing campfires properly.The intensity of bushfires is increased by dry vegetation, often after a period of heatwave, together with strong, gusting winds, and absence of precipitation.Faulty power lines are also often a cause. Sparking and arcing from these powerlines easily ignites into bushfires.
Most natural disasters are completely natural. These include earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, severe storms, tornadoes, cyclones (including typhoons and hurricanes), hailstorms, droughts, blizzards and heatwaves. Some natural disasters may be started by man. Man is a common cause of bushfires, for example, although bushfires can also be started by lightning strikes. The effects of many natural disasters are often made worse by man's activities. Floods can be made worse by poor drainage. The effects of earthquakes are worse where man has not built sufficiently strong structures to withstand forces. Bushfires are worse where vegetation has not been cleared.
A statistic according to the National Weather Service states that in the United States of America there are an average of 25 (twenty five) million lightning strikes detected.
For 2008 NOAA reports that there were 296,499 "Cloud to Ground" strikes in Wisconsin, which is very near the average number of strikes reported from 1996-2008 of 302,5321 strikes per year. From 1992-1995 the National Lightning Detection Network lists that there were almost 22 million strikes in the United States per year. Additionally, for the period 2000-2009 there were 7 deaths caused by lightning strikes in Wisconsin. For the reporting period from 1959 to 1994 there were 194 injuries from lightning strikes reported.
Lightning strikes over a million times a day.
More than 10 million times a minute
Although many lightning flashes are simply cloud-to-cloud, there are as many as 9,000,000 reported lightning strikes that damage buildings, trees, and other objects every year.Worldwide, it is estimated that of an annual 1.4 billion lightning bolts, 25% (more than 350 million) will strike the Earth's surface or objects on the surface. The vast majority of these strikes, however, occur in the tropics, and in unpopulated areas.100 times per second;Lightning can strike over a thousand times in one storm. So, lightning strikes the earth over a million times a day.Globally, 8,640,000 lightning strikes per day. See the related link for more information.
