Jeffery A. Luck was cited for code violations including a lack of smoke alarms, pad locks on bedroom doors, and no working sprinkler or fire alarm systems at the six additional Edgewood properties. Dwellings with more than six occupants are required to have sprinkler and fire alarm systems. Inspectors will return to check if the properties have been brought up to code. The properties Luck manages are 1846 Grempler Way, 1848 Eloise Lane, 1854 Eloise Lane, 1945 Brookside Drive, 1947 Brookside Drive, and 1459 Charlestown Drive.

The fatal fire occurred at a property Luck manages on Simons Court and was not included in the inspections that resulted in the citations against Luck. The Office of the State Fire Marshal continues to investigate that deadly fire and will perform additional inspections on Luck’s other properties to ensure safety protocols have been met.

So far, no criminal charges have been filed against Luck or anyone else in the fire deaths.
