ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - Atlantic City’s acting fire chief says he’s “very concerned” the owner of the former Revel casino has left the building a fire trap.

Scott Evans says owner Glenn Straub violated fire code when he dismissed nine union engineers this week, leaving Revel’s emergency equipment without a qualified operator.

The city delivered a violation notice to the property on Wednesday. It will begin fining Straub’s North Country Club Inc. if the company doesn’t obtain competent engineers to oversee the property’s fire sprinklers, fire alarms, smoke evacuation equipment and emergency elevators.

According to The Press of Atlantic City (https://bit.ly/1L50U6W), Straub says engineering giant Siemens is training replacement engineers. He says the union engineers were overpaid.

Evans says Siemens has told the city that it will take 30-60 days to train new engineers.
