There is a big difference in having the power shut off to a building that is mostly destroyed in a fire and using that threat over trivial violations.I'm working a house electrical fire right now where the FD didn't tell the Poco to pull the meter and HO was still in the house. I went to city hall to pull a permit and mentioned it to an inspector. He got twisted off and said he would have it pulled. Don't know if he went through the FD or not, but it was pulled the next day.
I can imagine how happy the HO is that you got his power shut off while he was still there.
