KITTERY, Maine (AP) - Authorities in Maine said Monday they have identified a man who died in a hotel fire that remains under investigation.

The May fire destroyed the Days Inn in Kittery, along the state’s border with New Hampshire. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner identified the victim as 57-year-old Daniel Clarke of Manassas, Virginia.

The cause of the fire hasn’t been determined yet, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety said.

The building was declared a total loss after the fire, which required a large response from surrounding departments.
