BATON ROUGE- The fire department said Friday there were no violations when inspectors checked an apartment complex that eventually burned and left nearly three dozen homeless.

The Turner Plaza Apartments caught fire Wednesday. Another portion of the complex burned a few years earlier, too.

Fire investigators told the WBRZ News 2 Investigative Unit, there had been no complaints or violations for almost ten years. The building had been inspected most recently in September.

City leaders are collecting donations for people who lost everything in the fire. Gently used or new household items can be dropped off at the MLK Center on Gus Young between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
