the FD always says they're going to investigate the cause of the fire, do they generally publish these results anywhere? I've seen it reported when it's something absolutely absurd (that welding equipment in back bay) but for just, day to day fires? as somebody scared stiff of fires :( I would find it enlightening as a "things to watch out for" resource

All fires are reported on the NFiRS (National Fire Incident Reporting System)...State Fire Marshal and city Fire Marshall keeps the records.
