Crawl space venting into the garage

Split level house with crawl space under the front half has two vents into the garage. I consider this a issue for two reasons. Not a source of fresh air and a void of the fire wall between the garage and the house. Am I correct on this?

I always considered it a fire separation issue and wrote it up that way. However, the city of Houston was requiring it for P&B homes in some flood prone areas.
