On Monday District Attorney Seth Williams announced he would not bring criminal charges in the Buck Hosiery fire on April 9, 2012 that left two firefighters dead.

“While the building owners violated virtually every regulation that got in their way, they were never held accountable for doing so, and we do not believe that the available evidence can establish that their flagrant code violations and tax delinquencies caused the fire that eventually destroyed their property and the firemen’s lives. Nevertheless, there are lessons to be learned. Had city departments done their job, these deaths might never have occurred,” the jurors wrote in the report.
