A lawsuit has been filed over a deadly fire at an apartment complex in San Antonio, Texas. The fire took place at the Wedgwood Senior Living Apartments in late December and ended in the deaths of six residents, as well as injuries to many others.
The lawsuit was filed on Wednesday and accuses the apartment complex of failing to install and maintain appropriate safety measures. The lawsuit lists a number of faults including “the lack of fire sprinklers inside the 11-story building, failing to install or maintain smoke detectors, smoke alarms and fire extinguishers, and failing to adequately notify elderly residents of how to evacuate in the event of a fire.” Many more plaintiffs are expected to be added to the lawsuit.
