The chief said this week the fire broke out in an area where work was being done. That's when the I-Team started asking if the construction company pulled the necessary permits.
Langer Roofing was hired by the church to put a new slate roof on.
The City's Department of Neighborhood Services spokesperson wrote the I-Team Friday to say "a building permit(s) was required for roofing work," she continued to say "our records indicate there are no permits on file."
Church contacts told the I-Team a contract with Langer Roofing required them to file all permits for the work.
The I-Team called the company the day after the fire, but never got a callback. It went Thursday in an attempt to speak with the company's president. He wasn't available.
The Company issued a statement saying in part: "we remain committed to safety first and foremost and will continue to ensure that the company remains in compliance with all OSHA and other regulatory statutes at all times."
