Niya Bolduc, left, watches Wednesday afternoon as the remains of the fire-damaged apartment building at 226 Blake St. in Lewiston are demolished. Bolduc says she watched in horror last month as fire destroyed the building where some of her friends were living. She says there are too many buildings downtown are not up to code and pose dangers to residents and neighbors. Many people in the area say they had thought the green building in the background would also be torn down, but city officials say it only need be brought up to code. Russ Dillingham/Sun Journal
