Somehow my response to this post was mixed with another response.

But on the subject of a fire. You say "it was his [landlord's] fault'. Are you saying this was arson by the landlord? Do you have the police or fire marshall's report? Bear in mind you'd need rather substantive evidence if you intend to sue your landlord for causing a fire.

Renter's insurance would cover damage to personal possesion due to fire or other calamity. It also usually covers moving and temporary housing expense when you are forced to leave. When you have renter's insurance, the insurance company pays you, then goes after whoever caused the damage in court.
