A torched nabe & lives in ruins
Daily News covers the fires on Pacific Street:
Some in the community fear that indifference and neglect will help the blight spread like a cancer.
"Whether the fires are intentional or accidental, they mean displacement and blight, and can lead to land speculation and the threat of eminent domain," said Bill Batson, co-chairman of Community Board 8's fire safety committee.
A sign on the door of the four-story building of railroad flats reads, "One short sad week ago two mothers and two small children lost their lives ... murdered by arson fire. ... Who is trying to clear out Pacific St.? Why? Money?"
