The West Virginia Attorney General's Office has ordered Clarksburg to stop enforcing its building codes following a complaint by the state Fire Commission.
The newspaper says Assistant Attorney General Stephen R. Connolly told the city in a letter that it must stop all building code enforcement until it adopts a current version of the state building code, or until the complaints' outcome.
City Manager Martin Howe declined to comment, saying he hadn't received a copy of the letter yet.
