In the comments, some people who watched Bear Brown and his family start rebuilding came up with their own ideas. Here are some of them”

I think that it was probably the Browns operating machinery in tall grass during a severe drought because that’s what they show them doing before the fire started. 🙃 An official cause hasn’t been released yet although it was determined to be created by humans and not lightening (sic) or any other natural phenomena.
I wouldn’t rule out insurance however I don’t think I even the browns are that stupid. It was tinder dry everywhere that year. I think either stupidity or poorly managed chronic EXTREME impulsiveness. 🐻
Probably Billy chain smoking Marlboro reds.
I think it started on a neighbor’s land in WA but it’s been awhile and I forget what was determined to have started it.
Insurance Fire?
Back in 2020, The Sun cited fans who believed that Bear Brown and his family had set the fire as an insurance scam. However, the outlet wrote, “a Public Information Officer for the Palmer Fire…denied the rumor.” The official said:

The Alaskan Bush People starting the fire is a rumor. Yes we heard it. That rumor is not substantiated. They’re not being investigated. The fire cause is being investigated. We’re not investigating them specifically.

At best, the fire investigation would probably only arrive at a “probable cause.” Given the winds and the burning embers in the area, it could have started anywhere in this vicinity. How it started does not yet seem to have been officially released.
