Burned Church had Several Code Violations

From: Des Moines Register

The east Des Moines church that burned Friday in an apparent arson was used for several years as a shelter for the homeless and had been tagged with several fire code violations, a fire official said Saturday morning.

The Des Moines Fire Department was aware the pastor who owned the the Lighthouse Full Gospel Church, Rev. David Reasby, had been using it as a shelter, and worked with him over a period of years help bring the building up to code, department spokesman Brian O’Keefe said.
