6ABC reports that Art Institute students evacuated from their dorms earlier this week are still homeless. "More than 550 students remain out of their dorm rooms in the old Center City building where the school rents space. The building failed another safety inspection today. The school is footing the bill for the students to stay at Center City hotels and picking up their meal tabs, as well. The city ordered a mass evacuation early Monday morning after License and Inspections found a staggering list of safety code violations including a broken fire alarm system and a faulty heating system. The evacuation was ordered at 4:30 Monday morning when one student's carbon monoxide detector went off. Workmen have been seen going in and out of the Broad and Chestnut landmark since the evacuation, but after another walk through inspection today with the landlords, a New York acquisition and holding company, L and I said there's been progress, but it is still nowhere near being in compliance."
