“Farm organizations gave tens of thousands of dollars to fire sufferers.”
#1, why did it cost so much to fire them?
#2, by what authority did the farmers fire them?
And #3, if they were already suffering, wasn’t it cruel to fire them?
Or, if these were folks who suffered in a fire, how could the sentence be written to guarantee that the meaning isn’t misunderstood?
Especially when a word can be both a noun and a verb, beware.
(Sometimes, it’s not ideal to coin a phrase; better to simply spell it out: victims of the fires, in this case.)
Like many words with multiple meanings, fire can burn ya.
