Buildings in Manchester are inspected once every three years.

198 Wilson St. was most recently inspected in November and was written up for 44 code violations, including missing smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. However, all violations were corrected when the inspector returned in mid-December.

The certificate of compliance issued at that time was revoked this morning when news of the fire reached city hall.

In total, firefighters say they rescued 30 people from the building. Fire Chief Daniel Goonan says none of the seven apartment units that were occupied are livable now, due to either fire or water damage.
