§ 94.042  BUILDINGS WITHOUT FIRE LANES DECLARED NUISANCE; ABATEMENT; SUIT.
   (A)   Unless otherwise exempted in the code, it is declared that any building open to the public which does not have unobstructed access for fire fighting equipment constitutes a fire hazard and a public nuisance because it endangers the lives of the public.
   (B)   Upon recommendation of the Fire Chief or Fire Marshal, the Board of Public Works and Safety may require the abatement of the nuisance by ordering the building closed to the public and evacuated, which order shall be enforced by the Police Department.
   (C)   At the request of the Board of Public Works and Safety, the City Attorney may file suit in the name of the city for the abatement of the nuisance.
