Signs of the Times: Fires in Abandoned Houses

by James & Miel on June 21, 2009 · 0 comments

Hi All,

The Associated Press is reporting that the number of fires in abandoned homes has increased by 60% in the past three years. Whats happening is homes are abandoned or put into foreclosure. And since the house’s occupants are typically gone and the owners are distant banking bureaucracy, nobody cares, so the houses are more likely to catch fire.

Its a sad sign of the times, especially when you consider that sooner or later the economy is going to recover and eventually those houses will be worth something. This is a serious waste of our societies wealth.

The full story is at the AP.
