Illegal yeshiva in NY destroyed by fire

A yeshiva that was being run without permits or safety checks in NY's Spring Valley burned down in a suspicious blaze:
A Spring Valley yeshiva dormitory that was destroyed by a suspicious fire did not have a certificate of occupancy and had been cited for violations, officials said Friday.

[...] When the group home vacated, a previous village administration allowed the yeshiva to use the building as a dormitory — a decision Wren criticized.

"It's as unsafe as you can get," he said. "A dormitory and a group home are totally different uses."

Trailers on the property that were supposed to be temporary have been there for years, he noted.

[...] The dormitory was equipped with an automatic fire alarm but that system did not appear to be working when the fire broke out, Johnson said.
There seem to be quite a few cases going around involving Haredis who lack any interest in maintaining convincing safety steps, compounded by the fact they're running these buildings without permits. Now, thanks to the continued refusal by the yeshiva managers to meet any of these standards, a terrible disaster took place when it could've been avoided. Why won't local authorities make clear once and for all that if they don't act legally, they'll have to skip lest more dangers like this occur?
