Wow, that's a scary thought. I haven't heard of it, but I suppose it is possible, considering that they're made from chemicals that could perhaps ignite. Another possible cause might be backed-up dryer lint. I'd suggest that you Google terms like "dryer ball" + fire (to see if anyone else reports the same problem). Meanwhile, I'd get somebody out to look at the dryer, to make sure the fire wasn't caused by a mechanical problem.
