Looks like there may have been a spark at an electrical junction or control box on the left side of the chute tower.
Never try to tell me it can't be done

It could also be the load of palm kernel expeller dust causing a static spark as in slides each other particles as it is falling down. Some other loads like cotton fibers, flour, etc can make similar flash fires. It looks like maybe the crane operator may have dumped the clam shell load from too high a point.
