OSHA Fines Fire Department in Deaths

State regulators fined the Charleston (S.C.) Fire Department and a furniture store Thursday for violating safety standards in a blaze that killed nine firefighters.

The state Occupational Safety and Health Administration did not say that the violations led directly to the June 18 deaths of nine firefighters. It was the single worst loss of firefighters since the 2001 terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center.

The combined fines totaled $42,100.
