I'm new to the school and already I'm having difficulties with my first assignment. I know what "bias" sentences look like, but I honestly never heard of Jewish fire...The sentence reads: The insurance agent said, "That's a Jewish fire if I've ever seen one." I know there is something off about Jewish fire, but what is it?

It's a slur against Jewish people. It implies that the fire was arson set by a Jewish person. It is a stereotype.
