LA fire inspections can't keep pace

A Los Angeles Times analysis of fire inspection reports "show that personnel from the department's Bureau of Fire Prevention and Public Safety have been falling behind in their efforts to flag hazards such as inoperable sprinkler systems, illegally stored hazardous materials and broken or missing fire extinguishers.
