Whenever the State Fire Marshal has reason to believe that any individual, partnership, corporation, association, or joint venture is or has been violating any provision of this chapter, the State Fire Marshal or his or her deputy or assistant may issue and deliver to the individual, partnership, corporation, association, or joint venture an order to cease and desist the violation. Failure to comply with any order under this section shall constitute a Class B misdemeanor and shall be punishable as provided by state law. In addition, the State Fire Marshal may impose a civil penalty not to exceed two hundred fifty dollars ($250) for each day the violation exists. Violation of any provision of this chapter or failure to comply with a cease and desist order shall be cause for revocation of a State Fire Marshal's permit.
