Houses are randomly burning down in my neighborhood should I be concerned?

3 houses burned down in a roll and one up the street caught fire and burned down, the one next to us caught fire and burned but then was rebuilt. We have a whole lot of blank spaces in our neighborhood where houses use to stand. Any reason why these housed burned down? Some say it is an electrical fire.

Any reason why these housed burned down? Some say it is an electrical fire. But they are burning down in a roll or not too many months a part.

We live in a lower middle class house neighborhood. These houses are cookie cutter Houses, 1 story slap foundation and 3 to 4 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in each of them.

Dogs are casually loose in the streets mainly pit bulls, shoes are sometimes seen hanging in a row on the power lines on various streets in this subdivision. There seems to be swat teams entering in it regularly or a bunch of policemen.

There seems to be a lot of trash around throughout the subdivision including broken bottles of alcoholic beverages. The houses seems to be let go, or run down. The subdivision isn't on a code on how clean and tidy the houses should look. Some houses have grass in the yard up to your belt, abandoned and not cut. Some houses has murals or graffiti on them.

Back to the subject, why are these houses burning down left and right in our subdivision?
