If the stair is in the same enclosure as the rest of the exit stair, then it is considered part of the same exit system and all the code requirements for exits govern. Only way to separate it from the rest is with a fire rated partition.

btw In my first apartment when I moved to DC (long ago), I used to lock my bike at the bottom of my stairwell, and I knew better. Eventually moved it into a store room in the basement.
