NEWARK - Last Friday's fatal fire that killed four children and one adult has Newark residents concerned about abandoned homes in the city.
That fire started in a vacant home and quickly spread, and the cause is still under investigation.
City officials say they try to demolish abandoned homes that are on city property in order to minimize the fire hazard.
That abandoned house on Brookdale Avenue is one of thousands in Newark, a constant reminder of hard times and an ever-present danger to the surrounding neighborhoods.
