PASSAIC - A fire in Passaic forced families from their homes last week and now they may also be forced out of their temporary housing.

Support groups like the Red Cross have run out of funds to help the families, which means they can no longer stay at places where they've been living, such as the Howard Johnson.

Miriam Gonzalez, a relocation officer with the City of Passaic, says, "This is the first time in 21 years that I have been here that when we have a disaster of this type, I haven't been able to get the funding."

Gonzalez says she has tried to find the victims new homes and is collecting donations, but it's getting harder without backup from charity groups.
