Abandoned Newark ‘beer baron’ mansion
apparently set ablaze by squatter

A 32-room Victorian mansion in Newark suffered extensive fire damage on Thursday night, leaving the homeless who slept in the abandoned building without a place to stay while city officials determine if the building can be saved. Janeal Ferguson, who often slept in the mansion at 176 Clinton Ave., told NJ Advance Media someone set the structure ablaze, but declined to say why. She said a tight-knit group of squatters who often slept there to find a reprieve from the streets would use the fireplaces inside.(Snip) The structure was one of the few remaining “beer baron” mansions in Newark.
