Inspections are not a guarantee. First one must do proper inspection.  Second, one must fix whatever is broken or missing.  Both a bit suspect when independent agencies that can't be bribed are rare, or if ignorance and not training, or standards, or experience exist. 

 

Station club fire in Rhode Island is a good example.  A comedy of errors which were not funny that led to 100 people getting killed

What a great money making scheme. Police and fire dept inspecting and finding nothing wrong if envelope is full enough.

Great....officials out on an excursion fund raising....just in case they need to do some real inspections, do any of them have fire safety experience......apart from expired extinguishers...locked back doors??

Why is this news worthy. I appreciate there is a certain amount off fallout after the tragedy the other day. However, these people should already be doing checks on a regular basis.

This prompted me to do a bit of searching about major fires - theaters, clubs and high-rise apartments.  Despite building codes, inspections and all, it's astounding at how many are due to rule violations and general incompetence.

 

Coconut Grove fire 1942 - 492 deaths,  Iroquois Theatre fire 1903 - 602 deaths

The Grenfell Tower high rise fire caused quite a stir.  It was found that thousands of buildings had similar flammable cladding and insulation.
