Rock Concrete

How could Rome have burned when most of the buildings were made of stone and marble?

For instance, the original Roman Pantheon was built of travertine, yet it was destroyed by fire. My understanding is that most of the buildings that burnt during the great fire under Nero's reign were also of rock, concrete, marble. etc. How would a fire destroy these building materials?

the palace walls were made of stone (be it marbe or whatever). So were the temples- but not the houses in the city.

A typical house in Rome was called an "insula" (island) and had 7 or 8 storeys. Lowest down were the shops, higher up were apartments.
These houses were mostly wood- lower level walls made of stone and plaster, but with wooden floors, ceilings, roofs etc. Upper storeys were made of wood to save on weight. Also wooden staircases. Add to this furniture, cooking oil, cooking firewood, etc. Plenty to burn
Even the palaces had wood in their construction- roof beams, furniture, floors, etc. Once a big fire started, there was plenty to burn,
