Over 60 Code Violations Found in Rochester House Involved in Fatal Fire

The Rochester apartment house that was the scene of a fatal fire last week reportedly had 62 city code violations.

News10NBC reports the violations in a November inspection included at least one for smoke alarms. Some others were for trash, and broken windows. The house on Hancock Street did not have a certificate of occupancy.

The city's commissioner for Neighborhood and Business Development tells the station his office was days away from going to the law department to get an order to vacate the property.

Police have not been able to find any relatives for the deceased tenant, 78-year-old Christine Cannon.
