Prosecutors brought charges against the inspector who had checked the building in which nine people were killed in the fire on January 16.
The fire inspector is accused of negligence that resulted in the death of two or more people, under Article 293, Part 3 of Russia's Criminal Code, Maritime Territory prosecutor Alexei Anikin told a news conference in Vladivostok on Wednesday. "Investigators said senior fire inspector of the city's Pervorechensky district Alexei Lobanov examined the Promstroiniiproyekt building in July 2004, and exposed a number of irregularities, such as latticed windows in stairwells, but failed to control the elimination of these shortcomings," Anikin said. The investigators believe the breaches of fire safety rules caused the fatal blaze. The latticed windows trapped people inside the building, cutting their ways to evacuation. Seven people died when trying to escape to eaves or advertising boards attached to the building. They were unable to keep hold on them and fell to their death. Sixteen investigators are conducting the probe. They are examining several versions of the tragedy, including arson, damaged wiring and careless handling of fire, according to the prosecutor.
