  • My grandad's carelessness almost set fire to the mountain!

Oh dear! What did your grandad do? It's easy to forget that in the summer the conditions may be 'like a tinderbox' and that the whole area may catch fire very easily with very little help.
Tinderbox = In conventional usage, the term "tinderbox" refers to something that is so dry that it could catch on fire with the slightest provocation, perhaps even spontaneously like a forest fire. It is also used to describe a potentially volatile or violent situation. For instance, a prison in which there is unrest and the potential for a riot could be said to be 'a tinderbox of violence.'
Oh dear! What did your grandad do?
あら!祖父は何をしていたの?
夏は状況は火打ち石のようなもので、ちょっとした不注意でどこでも火事になりやすいことを忘れがちです。

Tinderbox
火打ち石。

会話で使われる時は、tinderboxは、あまりに乾燥しているため自然発生した森林火災のようなちょっとした誘発行為で火がついてしまうことを表しています。

この語は揮発性が高い、危険な状況を表す際にも用いられます。

If you are careless, you do not pay enough attention to what you are doing, and so you make mistakes, or cause harm or damage.

The cause of an event, usually a bad event, is the thing that makes it happen.

My grandfather was being careless and almost caused a fire.
If you are careless, you do not pay enough attention to what you are doing, and so you make mistakes, or cause harm or damage.
注意力散漫で、やっていることに気をつけてないないとミスをしたり、人に迷惑をかけたり、損害を与えます。

良くないことが起こるのは、それなりの原因があるのです。

My grandfather was being careless and almost caused a fire.
私の祖父は不注意だったので、危うく火事になるところだった
