  1. basically, don’t put a cigarette in the garbage before making sure it is totally extinguished. Not smoking at all is one way to avoid this issue.

  2. Read- It happened on Yom Tov. Smoking on Yom Tov is a thing of the past. Most modern day poskim asur it. What apparently happened is this person who was smoking did not want to existinguish the cigarette because of Yom Tov So he/she threw it into the garbage without extinguishing. Fortunately, insurance covers even for foolishness.
