PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The Maine medical examiner’s office is identifying the final person killed in a Portland house fire that claimed six lives.

Office administrator Mark Belserene said Wednesday that the fire killed 26-year-old Nicole Finlay of Portland.

The blaze also killed Portland residents David Bragdon Jr., Ashley Thomas and Christopher Conlee, and Maelisha Jackson of Topsham, who were previously identified. A Massachusetts General Hospital spokeswoman said 29-year-old Steven Summers of Rockland died Tuesday afternoon after suffering burn injuries in the fire.

State police say it was a deadliest blaze in Maine in 40 years. Fire marshals are still investigating the fire that ripped through at a two-apartment house, which is located near the University of Southern Maine.
