How about arcing?

HF waves directed into a mixture of bundled up metal wires in a pure oxygen atmosphere... I would not be surprised if there were a spark between two wires or a standing wave in a suitable formed wire segment. If you only get one small spark then it might be enough for the fire to start and then it's all downhill from there.
