Who did Emperor Nero blame for the burning of Rome?

Christians Who did Emperor Nero blame for the burning of Rome?
The answer is: Christians

the Great Fire of Rome started on the night of 18 July in the year 64 CE, among the shops clustered around the Circus Maximus.
It is uncertain who or what actually caused the fire—whether accident or arson. According to Tacitus, some in the population held Nero responsible. To diffuse blame, Nero targeted the Christians. Christians confessed to the crime, but it is unknown if these were false confessions induced by torture.
