: The problem is: the reason the fire "took" so much with it was because three water hydrants around the apartment were DRY! Apparently, the city cannot/will not fine the apartments, but HOW can anyone feel safe in this complex?
You don't say what city you are in, but in much of Texas, there are no building codes, so although the apartment complex may have had hydrants, they may have never been tested. This is the city's fault. The city fire department in most places is responsible for testing all hydrants every so often.
