Whenever there are practical difficulties involved in carrying out the provisions of this chapter, the Chief Inspector may, as the Chief Inspector deems to be appropriate under the circumstances, grant modifications for individual cases. No modification shall be approved unless the Inspector shall first find that a special individual reason makes the strict letter of this chapter impractical and that the modification is in conformity with the intent and purpose of this chapter. Such modification may be granted only when the modification does not lessen any fire protection requirements, compromise structural integrity, or otherwise adversely affect any other safety requirements. The details of any action granting modification shall be recorded and entered in the files of the city, Division of Inspections.
