I don't intend this to sound disingenuous in the face of a horrific disaster but fire hazards in old or poorly conducted buildings must have been a known risk for decades. It must be a known risk here too albeit on a smaller scale. Are we also to believe in all facets of social services with antiquated infrastructure there are not more accidents waiting to happen?
It's horribly unfortunate that it's only in the face of disaster that change only comes about. But I don't think any government is going to clean up every old error and more things like this will inevitably occur. Its an incredibly sad event.
