The families of seven people killed in an August fire that occurred in Memphis, Tennessee, have filed a lawsuit seeking $90 million in damages. The lawsuit, filed in state court, claims electrical problems at the rental property were ignored or not adequately repaired. The suit also claims there were no working smoke detectors in the building and that the triplex did not have at least two ways of exiting. The suit, which was filed last month, named the property owner, the City of Memphis and others as Defendants. Tragically, five children were among the seven people who died in the fire.
