PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Building inspectors in Portland, Maine, say an apartment building where a man fell to his death has passed its latest inspection.

Donald Stain died in a fall when a railing gave way on a second-floor porch at the Cumberland Avenue apartment building last month. Inspectors found that all of the porches at the apartment had structural issues and either needed to be repaired or torn down. The building also had fire safety issues and electrical safety problems.

WCSH-TV (https://on.wcsh6.com/1FiWcRR ) says city inspectors checked out the building on Tuesday and found that landlord Harry Krigman has blocked all access to the porches and plans to tear them down. Krigman has until June 8 to correct other issues at the building. His four other properties were also being inspected on Tuesday.
