The only conspiracy here is the Chinese attempting to destroy all vestiges of Tibetan history, religion and culture - with the elimination of Tibetan Buddhism uppermost in the Chinese aims.
The fire would almost certainly have been deliberate, in an attempt to eliminate any Tibetan sites of historical or religious (Buddhist) interest.
The Chinese are essentially carrying out a subtle genocide against Tibetans, such is their hatred of them.
The Chinese are deliberately overwhelming the Tibetans until they cease to exist as a culture and a nation - and they will stop at nothing to achieve that aim.
Exile, forced re-location and re-housing, mass importation of Chinese into Tibetan strongholds, "re-education" courses in Tibetan monasteries, lack of compensation for Tibetan losses, refusal to allow Western fact-finding missions into Tibet to interview Tibetans - the list is long.
Fire is just another convenient tool in the Chinese arsenal in the undeclared war against the Tibetans.
