As far as I am concerned, D is the best choice.
A) "quickly" is an adverb, and it is supposed to modify an adjective; however "flames spreading" is a noun phrase. To be correct, "quickly" must be replaced by "quicker".
B) "ignition", a noun, is not parallel to "flame spreads", a verb phrase.
C) "ignition", a noun, is not parallel to "flames are caused to spread", a verb phrase.
D)"quickly", an adverb, appropriately modifies "flames to spread", a verb phrase. In addition, "making ignition" and "causing flames" are parallel.
E) "quickly", an adverb, should not modifies "spreading of the flames", a noun phrase.

does anybody can explain why E is not correct?

A fire in an enclosed space burns with the aid of reflected radiation that preheats the fuel, making ignition much easier and causing spreading of the flames more quickly.
I think such use is not logical - you can't say for sure to which part of the sentence 'more quickly' refers to. It should refer to the speed of spreading rather than to 'a fire' burning or 'making ignitions'...
