[rfcvmehz] I lived in Somerville before it burned down

Under what conditions can there be significant urban fires, a whole neighborhood or more burning to the ground?  (Inspired by the Santa Rosa fire.)  Hypothesize that all that is required is high density of wood-frame buildings (frequently residential), some vegetation, and severe drought.

Climate change can bring about severe drought in areas which may have never previously experienced it.
