I'd say a mixture of all 4 really, nero wasn't exactly a nice guy and he'd welcome the rebuilding of Rome in his own style. The christians were
peeved over the whole incident with the lions and the death etc. Now the third is the one i'd rule out, rome had a decent fire fighting service, many
buildings were made from stone instead of woods and would not have burned easily. Looters really have nothing to profit with if the entire city is
razed to the ground.
