``As of July, there were 899 open violations at 273 bank-owned buildings across the borough, including a property less than three blocks away from 2321 Prospect Ave., the site of the April blaze that killed a family of three. Banks such as Wells Fargo and Deutsche Bank are ignoring a state law that requires lenders to maintain and secure the foreclosures, said state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx/Westchester), who issued the damning report. The law took effect in 2010.''
