Burn-Outs: Fire Victims in North Jersey, the Red Cross, and the Housing Market
Poor families who became fire victims in North Jersey between 1987 and 1991 generally found housing quickly, but had to pay a lot more rent. However, a substantial number could not be located after the fire, and so the conclusion must be modified because some may have gone on welfare, left the area, or become homeless. This finding is consistent with the notion that some classes of low quality housing were disappearing in the late 1980's.
