Man falls 14 stories down Portland apartment chimney shaft to his death

Firefighters found the man, whose name has not been released,
buried in about four feet of hot, burning ash at the bottom of a chimney
shaft in the Ione Plaza Apartments in downtown Portland, near Portland
State University. The man and his friend had been on the roof
when
the
victim
fell. They had apparently ignored signs to stay
off the roof and chimney area, authorities said. It was not the
first time
someone
at the apartment building fell down a shaft to his death. In the
previous case, the man had been missing for
a
month before his body was found.
