Fire blight is a bacterial disease and can move from pear to apple. . I am attaching a link from the the University of Tennessee Cooperative Extension Service that explains how to control fire blight. https://extension.tennessee.edu/publications/Documents/SP277-R.pdf
For more information contact your county office. They should be able to give you information about growing apples and pears in your County.
