Gilreath Manor, main building, six units
Two violations jump out in this AFD report, one not so serious, one deadly serious. Amherst has a zoning bylaw limiting unrelated tenants to four per household -- that's the not so serious violation.
State building codes requires two means of egress from a basement bedroom -- that's the deadly serious infraction.
As I pointed out in my original post, what if the fire had happened in the wee hours of the morning rather than 12:00 noon? A fire across the main floor would have trapped anybody asleep in those basements.
Two bedrooms per unit times six units: "Nobody gets out of here alive."
