FALL RIVER, Mass. -

A Fall River apartment building was shut down by the state Board of Health on Wednesday a month after city inspectors swept through it and found the building uninhabitable.

The building on 63 Hargraves St. has been condemned by the city, and dozens of tenants have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to move out.

A copy of the inspection report said many of the apartments contained mold and that cockroaches and rats were prevalent throughout the building.

The building is owned by David Colville.

Colville will face charges on 13 counts of child endangerment after his properties at 265 and 167 County streets were condemned in August.

"They have a landlord that has allowed the property to fall into total disrepair," Fall River Mayor Will Flanagan told NBC 10 in August.
