Apple finally said Monday that it’s not going to fix the fires at its Cupertino, California, headquarters, leaving its employees to deal with their own.
“We do not have a timetable on when we will have the fireplaces in place,” an Apple spokesperson told Recode in a statement.
The company is still working on a plan to replace the fireplains, which were built in the late 1970s.
The spokesperson also noted that the company is not going into detail about how many fires have been caused by fires, but the company has said that it has been working with local authorities.

Reuters Apple said that “it’s possible some of the fires could be under control” in the near future.
It is still not clear how many of the affected buildings are currently vacant or how many employees have been displaced.
It’s unclear whether Apple will replace its fire-prone factories with fire-proof, more modern ones.
The fires in the two fires at the Apple facility in Palo Alto and the headquarters in Cupertinos California last year left hundreds of workers with serious burns.
Apple said last week that it would pay $5 million to cover the cost of fire-resistant structures.
In March, Apple said it would install a fire-extinguishing system in its Palo Alto facility.
