Hi,

I have been doing some research on trying to find some violations regarding a stage fire that occurred at a night club. Some background information about this - the night club owner had hired non-licensed electricians to build him a sound stage and do all the electrical wiring for him. Obviously they did not do it correctly and the stage caught on fire. Those individuals had wires laying all over the place underneath the stage and in some places had plugged multiple extension cords into one another. I believe the State of Ohio follows the NFPA codes. Also, being this occurred in 2011, I would need to find the code violations from NFPA NEC (2011). Can anyone help with the codes relative to commercial buildings and the requirements for conduit for electrical wiring, as well as, the prohibition against stapling wires to 2x4 cross members? Any other violations that can point me in the right direction will help to!

Thank you!

Not sure what dog you are in the fight but you need to hire a qualified electrical contractor and/ or electrical engineer as an expert witness.

It wasn't the electricians fault, it was probably yours.

He just did what you told him, and one of your lights caught something on fire, and your looking for someone else to blame.

Isn't that the new American way?
