These two houses have different owners. 55 has 2 owners and 53 one owner. All 3 have different last names. Each house is listed as two family. It is conceivable that 4 families consist of 30 people in total.

How is this legal? Two 1 family homes housing 10 families w 28 people??The rooms are divided making it a huge fire hazard. Electrical has to be over the limit. Very sad but there’s rules against these things for reasons

This is a situation where our Councilman Robert Holden Alicia Vaichunas need to step in. If there are that many families there is an issue and someone is breaking the law.

I also just saw a go-fund me and it said for the almost 30 residents of the two specific houses. I can’t fathom how that many people were living in those houses. 😞. Thankfully no one was killed, this was a disaster waiting to happen.

I know rents are high but this is not right. Way too many people

How many Go Fund Mes are there for this fire? I saw 1 and someone told there is another one.

I wonder if the owners lived in these houses.

As per the FDNY, the cause of the wire was accidental. Electrical wiring. twitter.com/FDNY/status/1759962153572814944?t=SRhZkUnpVqbZ77wgJc-cEg&s=19

How exactly were ten families affected from two homes ?? 28 people total ....were the surrounding homes involved ??

I heard there were 9 families living between the two houses

Something looks illegal here. However, I'm sorry for the people that lost so much.

What constitutes a family? Is it if you have 3 sisters with 3 spouses all living together does that mean those 6 people make 3 families?

Bullshit...

Lucky no one was killed. A wake up call for too many people living in a house.

28 people? Wow

Es estupido meterse a vivir más de 20 personas en una casa de 8 ridículamente estupido .. 🤬🤬🤬🤬
