San Bernardino's mayor on Tuesday said the city would consider increasing home inspections to uncover illegal window security bars, one of the factors that apparently led to three women and three children being killed in the city's deadliest house fire in nearly three decades. The city's fire marshal also announced plans to mail educational fliers on the dangers of the window bars and how, if installed without a required quick-release handle, they can turn homes into deadly firetraps.
