No fire alarm at Virginia senior living complex where 3 died in massive blaze 
A senior living complex where three people died and six were injured in a blaze this weekend did not have a fire alarm, according to the city's Fire Department. Chesapeake Crossing Senior Community Apartments was not required to have such an alarm, said fire department spokesman Capt. Scott Saunders.  But the president of Boyd Homes, which owns the low-income senior apartments, said the buildings are equipped with a sprinkler system that includes an alarm. And that alarm sounded during this weekend’s fire, said David Rudiger.
