ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 13 (UPI) -- Officials in St. Petersburg, Fla., have closed an apartment building and are looking into alleged fire code violations at other buildings owned by a same man.
The buildings are owned by Scott W. Snow, of Oldsmar, Fla. He refused to comment to the St. Petersburg Times regarding the code allegations.
Renters were told to move from the Chinook Apartments after inspectors found that earlier alleged violations had not been addressed, the newspaper said.
Records show that Snow bought the apartment building about a year after resolving a 2002 bankruptcy filing.
A manager at one of the Snow-owned building told the Times that Snow is a caring owner and "not this bad person."
