Landlord cited in wake of fatal fire

Decrying dangerous housing conditions for college students, city inspectors cited a landlord Tuesday for running an illegal rooming house in Allston where a fire caused the death of a Boston University ­senior who allegedly shared the structure with 18 other tenants.

The owner of the two-family structure, Anna Belokurova, was ­also cited for not obtaining permits needed to create bedrooms in the basement at 87 Linden St.
