Can council evict leaseholders if fire safety is insufficient?

I own my flat which is on leasehold. I am on the fourth floor of a seven floor block. The local council have instructed us to make our front doors air tight to prevent fire spreading. In process of doing. Now they have said they wish to enter my premises to survey it to see if anything presents a fire risk. If so they will enforce me to make changes etc. If I do not comply I will be fined etc. In some cases they have threatened tennants with removal from their premises (even though they own them) or demolishing the blocks of flats. Is any of this legal?
