A tragic Pennsylvania fire in a funeral business transformed into an apartment complex claimed the lives of four tenants last year. Now, another of the families has taken a step in the process of grieving by filing a wrongful death claim against the owners of the property. The surviving family blames the death of their loved one on deficiencies of the building.
The fire broke out on an upper floor of the converted home. Investigators declared the fire to have been accidental in nature and was not of suspicious origin. Regardless, lives were lost in this terrible event. The family who has initiated this civil suit have stated that the building did not have an adequate number of functioning smoke alarms. They have further indicated that there were no alarms on the floor where the fire began.
