Owners of a condominium at Dolphin Cove on Island Estates have filed a negligence suit against the company that manages the building and the homeowners association.
Filed in Pinellas-Pasco Circuit Court last week, the lawsuit by Gus and Carol Lewis claims the association and Greenacre Properties Inc. failed to properly maintain the building's fire extinguishing system, leading to a shortage of water to fight a fire on June 28.
The fire killed two elderly residents and badly burned three firefighters. Seven other residents have filed suits against Greenacre Properties Inc., and the homeowners association. A city firefighter burned in the blaze also has filed suit against Dolphin Cove.
