There are new developments that emerged on Wednesday in the fire that destroyed a Berkeley apartment building last month.

Investigators now say the elevator where the fire started in a control panel, had an expired permit and had not been inspected since August 2010.

The Nov. 18th fire gutted the building on Haste Street, leaving 68 people homeless. The state agency in charge of elevator inspections says the agency is running about five months behind on its inspections because of staffing.
