Are the newer Mercedes fire hazards?

Currently on E-bay, there are two fire damaged late model Mercedes. One is a 83K mile 1995 S600 coupe, that had a underhood fire and the other is a 2000 S500 4dr, with a interior fire. Seems unusual for newer cars, especially Mercedes to have this type of problem. Has anyone here had any gas leaks or electrical problems on their mid 90s to 2000 Mercedes? Are 90s-2003 Mercedes as reliable as the 70s and 80s models?
1991 Lincoln Town Car Executive (33k miles)
1991 Cadillac Sedan DeVille (77k miles)
1992 Toyota Camry LE (177k miles)
1972 Chevrolet Caprice Kingswood Estate 9-passenger wagon (44k miles)
1973 Pontiac Grand Ville 4-dr hardtop sedan (94k miles)
1988 Mercedes 300SEL (was mine, now mothers)
