SAN ANTONIO -- A woman accused of running an overcrowded boarding home apparently hasn't learned her lesson after four people were killed in a fire this summer.
City code inspectors say she's at it again.
Nancy Murrah was housing 13 mentally challenged men at the Amistad Residential Facility on the 300 block of West Norwood Court. Four of those men died in a fire back in August.
Roderick Sanchez, the director of development services, said the building was not up to code. He also said Murrah is once again housing more people at a home in the 800 block of W. French Place.
"A boarding home is three or more people (and) requires a certificate, which she doesn't have," Sanchez said.
Inspectors went out to the new boarding home on Wednesday morning, but nobody was inside.
"I really don't approve of it," said Julia Valdez, who lives near the boarding home.
Valdez said boarding homes belong in places other than neighborhoods.
Sanchez is now working to pass a new ordinance that would require annual inspection -- something he said the city doesn't do proactively.
City leaders have moved forward with the proposed ordinance. Sanchez said it should go before city council by the end of the year.
