Fire & illegal conversion in SI historic district

From SI Live:

A three-story house in New Brighton went up in flames late last night, and the blaze went to three alarms at 12:20 a.m.

No one was injured, according to the FDNY.

The fire at 42 Westervelt Ave. erupted at 11:24 p.m.; the FDNY was on the scene within four minutes.

The fire went to a second alarm at 11:32 p.m.

A total of 25 units responded to the blaze.

Fire press could not say if anyone was home at the time of the fire.

One witness saw smoke and flames from the eaves of the second floor.

The house, in which it is believed seven families live, is included in the St. George-New Brighton Historic District.

Really? It's only approved for 5.
