Brest-Litovsk, Russia now Brest, Belarus – Fires of 1802 - 1836

During the period of about thirty-four years (1802-1836) the city of Brest –
Litvosk, Russia now Brest, Belarus suffered >from four (4) disastrous fires. The
government forbids the restoration of the burnt buildings. Though the evidences
are not available some historians state that the city was put on fire deliberately
to make its inhabitants move to new places outside Brest, so that the Brest
Fortress could be built on the site of the original city.

Can anyone give me additional information about the many fires that occurred
between the years of 1802 – 1836?
