Site of deadly 9th Ward fire is now an Airbnb camp


For $15 a night
, you can sleep under the stars on a one-acre lot in New Orleans' 9th Ward.*On Dec. 28, 2010, eight people died in a fire ? one of the most deadly in three decades*?*on that same lot.

The "simple, cheap camping" listed on Airbnb doesn't have electricity or running water (the listing advertises using "the*bucket and cup method"), but there is an outdoor kitchen area and campfire with access to food from a dumpster. And it's safe: "nothing alarming has happened in the two months" the host has stayed there turning the site into a communal homestead garden.
