I have no data for comparison but Baltimore always seems to have a lot.

Firehouse.Com - The 2002 National Run Survey

Interesting summary with statistics. Baltimore is up there but not on top!

Definitely Youngstown, most house fires in the city are abondoned homes and almost all are arsons. I guess it saves the city from having to tear them down. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago an intentional fire took the lives of 6 people, which became Y-town's single deadliest homicide.

That reminds me--in the past, Detroit had huge amounts of home fires on Devil's Night. I don't think they do that anymore but it was a big issue for many years.
