Description

This special report reveals how missed inspections, missed paperwork and lax enforcement of safety laws plague New Jersey's fire prevention system. The Record investigated 1999 fire safety inspection records in Bergen, Passaic, Morris, and Hudson counties and found repeated lapses. The investigation was prompted by a dormitory fire that killed three students at Seton Hall University. The fire officials admitted that they had not inspected the campus that year and had sketchy records on earlier inspections.
