My father Richard L. Hofmann was a fire marshall with the Michigan State Police at the time. He inspected the Wenonah Hotel before and after the fire and said that it was a death trap. They ignored him and let it pass. I can remember my Dad telling me about this...I was seventeen. I don't who the "they" were...I know the warnings were ignored. Plenty of people were at fault for letting this go and people's lives were lost because of political or good old boy networks. My Dad passed in Nov 2019.
