Fire site has 200 violations

From NY1:

City officials say an apartment building that caught fire in the Washington Heights section of Manhattan Saturday has been cited for nearly 200 violations.

Flames broke out around 6:30 p.m. on the fifth floor of 607 West 180th Street.

Housing officials say they investigated an earlier complaint about the apartment where the fire started.

An inspector found no violations in that unit -- but there were plenty elsewhere -- with 192 open violations throughout the building's 21 apartments.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
