Will the landlord of the Ohio Street apartment that burned be charged with not providing adequate fire escapes?
As of Tuesday, no charges have been filed against the owner of the house at 1216 Ohio, according to Lawrence-Douglas County Fire & Medical. The case is still under investigation, however, Deputy Chief Mark Bradford said. The house where four people and a dog were sleeping at the time was heavily damaged in the Jan. 25 fire. Three of the occupants had to jump to the ground from upper floors.
