String of wood-framed apartment fires prompts call for
examination of state building codes
from For Construction Pros
Earlier this month, a six-alarm fire in Maplewood, destroyed part of an apartment complex under construction, reigniting the debate over the use of lightweight wood framing. The fire marks a troubling recent history for wood-framed construction in New Jersey. In January 2015, a fire destroyed a 240-unit apartment building in Edgewater, burning for seven hours and leaving 500 people homeless.
