Hey, can anyone translate this passage for me?

hoc anno res dirissima Romae accidit. multa incendia enim circum forum subito visa sunt. eodem tempore septem tabernae ardere inceperunt. tanti erant ignes ut templum Vestae vix defenderetur auxilio servorum, qui postea liberati sunt. omnes putabant id ab hominibus scelestis factum esse, quod incendia multis et diversis locis simul orta erant.

This isn't going to be perfect but it's the best I've got.. And a week late. Apologies. (the sentence in bold is likely very wrong. Could not work it out, sorry)

This year the most terrible thing happened in Rome. Many fires were seen around the forum. Seven shops began to burn at the same time. The servants of the temple of Vista helped defend the difficult fires, who are later freed. All thought that this was done by many obscene men, because many fires broke out at many places at the same time.


Saying it again been a little while since I've done Latin - attempted to work that out from all my various sheets I was given and I was far from a perfect student, but that is at least the rough translation of what happened. Sorry for being two weeks late.... Probably don't even need it any more but hey ho

Ha ha! Actually this was really helpful - it allowed me to see what structures I translated wrong. Thank you.
