If the glass envelope of an incandescent (or halogen) bulb had broken since the last time it was used, the exposed filament would make a pretty good ignitor. I guess it's pretty unlikely for this to happen without being caught, and even less likely that an explosive mixture of fuel fumes would be present if it did. But maybe still enough of a risk to think about?
