I can't really diagnose the problem with your arborvitaes without inspecting them. If they look fine and then suddenly die, it is probably a root stress problem - one that the trees have been dealing with for a long time. Then, when the weather gets too hot, they simply cannot deal with the added stress. Wish I had more information to offer.
