Tenants warned fire marshal, management of electrical issues before deadly fire

he South Metro fire marshal knew an apartment building was violating fire codes before the day it burned, killing one person in Arapahoe County and injuring four others, an inspection document shows.

A video posted online by the tenant union at the Ivy Crossings complex off Quebec shows the building that caught fire early Saturday morning had broken smoke detectors and missing fire extinguishers in the hallways.

The fire inspection report from February 9 notes the building was missing a manual fire alarm system and had faulty fire doors -- both fire code violations.

Representatives for Ivy Crossing did not respond to multiple requests for comment Tuesday.
