PORTLAND (AP) — A charter school in the Maine city of Portland has failed another inspection less than three weeks before it’s scheduled to open.

City inspectors have cited electrical and fire safety issues at the Baxter Academy charter school.

The building failed two previous inspections on Aug. 12 and in July because of fire safety related issues.

The Portland Press Herald reported (http://bit.ly/12pOGPS ) that city inspectors on Wednesday noted electrical issues, lack of a sprinkler and alarm test and incomplete fire-rate walls and doors.

The executive director of the school said it will open on time on Sept. 4.

City officials said that a follow-up inspection will be done once the issues have been addressed.
