CHARLTON, Mass. — A state probe of the blaze that destroyed part of the Spring Brook Mills complex last July, displacing several businesses, faulted the Charlton Fire Department for failing to follow up on safety concerns at the building.
The state Department of Fire Services report notes that investigators could find no documented follow-up to a Fire Department report in 2007 detailing problems with the building's sprinkler system, which did not work at the time of the fire, or to a 2009 report of fire code violations at an automobile dismantling business there.
