Again, not necessarily. Tallman worked 2nd or 3rd shift and may have come home very late, let's say 11pm or even after. Something of that nature - let'e say for the 10-20 seconds Allan saw it, wouldn't not necessarily be seen by any other neighbors - unless somebody happened to be looking out their windows facing Allan's garage, or standing out in their driveway at that precise moment looking towards Allan's house.

My neighbors house could catch fire at 2am, most of us won't see it or hear about it until hours later.

No. Not necessarily. Remember Mr. Tallman worked late nights sometimes - he could have come home at 11pm or even 2am. For the 10 seconds (give or take) he witnessed what he thought was his garage on fire, some other neighbor would either have to be looking out a specific window at that exact small moment of time, or standing in their drive-way across the street.

Very unlikely. Assuming what Alan Tallman saw was real, it only lasted a few second of time. It was also very late at night, when most people probably aren't up looking out a window or walking around outside. A real fire could start in my neighbor's house one night and most of us probably wouldn't even see or know what happened until hours after the fact, or until we heard sirens (that would be for a longer lasting than 10 seconds, real fire though).

This isn't proving Alan's vision one way or the other, just stating that it's more than likely nobody else would have seen it for that brief stint of time.

Of course this can't be proven, but this is known to be common. We never got much more information on the bunkbed or where the Tallman's got it from. Where was it bought, was it bought used? What was it's history? They could have picked it up at a garage sale after the death of it's previous owner or flea market and it could have been 50+ years old with some kind of a vast history to look into. Now if it was bought new, it's more unlikely to not have these connections, but still not impossible.
The Wiki said they got it from a second hand shop. One must ask why they seem to have the only haunted bunk beds in history.

Over the years I've often theorized what the ghost's beef was with the Tallman's. It often revolved around fire or an "old lady".

Maybe at one point in its history some old lady owned the bunkbed. Maybe she at some point lost a child (or grandchildren) to a fire in her house, and lived out her surviving days very bitter and angry. Maybe somebody at some point died in the bunkbed (or who used the bunkbed), and that was how the connection played out.

Again this is just an assumption. It's probable the spirits/ghosts didn't have an intitial personal issue with the Tallman's or their house per se, but that's just where that bunkbed happened to end up and as Stack narrated at the end of the episode - perhaps they were just in the wrong place at the wrong time..

Occam's razor would lend towards they made the whole thing up.
