Bed caught fire

Two days ago i had a buck booster catch fire in one of my rooms. Last night in another room the entire ballast of my bed caught fire. What could have possibly caused this? I installed bucks about 6 months ago only because i read on here that they would help. We never had a problem 5 years up until this. I think its to much a coincidence that both would go in 24 hours. Any ideas?? Now im afraid to use any of my level 3 beds.

The 442 has both 100wt and 160wt ballast, I believe your star power does too, Just use the right one.

Its not strange for a ballest to fry, over time wires will work loose.
