Description

"An ongoing investigation into what went wrong at the Sofa Super Store fire that killed nine Charleston firefighters on June 18, 2007. The Post and Courier's reports revealed numerous instances in which the fire department's leadership, training, equipment and tactics conflict with other area fire departments and national practices and standards. The newspaper also reported on shortcomings in the city's building inspection and water departments that contributed to the fire's rapid spread."
