I had always assumed that pyrokinesis was something of myth and fantasy, however something really freaky happened recently which is making me rethink that...

The other day I was washing my hair in the shower and thinking about my classes. Earlier that day in my murder and violent crimes class (I'm working on a criminal justice degree) we had discussed arson, and I was remembering the videos of fires, etc. Then something very odd happened - the (wet) conditioner bottle in my hand started smoking. It wasn't steam, and it wasn't coming from inside it; little tendrils were actually coming off of the bottle itself. I put the bottle down, moved it to various locations in the shower, trying to figure out what the heck was going on, but the smoke didn't stop coming off, and instead only increased in volume. Since then I've kept a close eye on that bottle, but so far the incident has not been repeated. Eventually the smoke stopped, around 15 minutes after turning off the water. (FWIW, the conditioner is Cibu's "Hue Nu" Color Protector conditioner)
So I wonder... what the heck happened?? Is it possible that I have unknowingly tapped into a latent pyrokinesis ability? Or is there some other explanation?
