The General Average and Necessity

Over at CoOp, Gerard Magliocca has an interesting post comparing the maritime doctrine of general average, where some compensation is owed to people whose property is destroyed to save a ship, and the property doctrine of necessity, which holds that no compensation is due when, for example, property is destroyed to prevent the spread of a fire.
