HBO has earned a reputation for producing some of the best TV shows in recent memory. This includes the likes of Game Of Thrones, The Wire and many more. However, HBO is now being sued for causing a massive fire a few years ago.

According to TMZ, HBO and the star, Mark Ruffalo, are being sued over the May 2019 fire that destroyed an upstate New York car dealership. The place was used as a filming location for the miniseries, “I Know This Much Is True.”

As revealed by the lawsuit, many people who live near the burned down property claim the fire exposed them to harmful toxins and carcinogens. They added that it damaged their homes as well.

The neighbors further claimed that HBO and the production team for the show have not even done much to clean up the site of the fire. They added it remained an “uncovered and unabated debris pile, toxin spill and wind-driven dust and gaseous dispersion.”

The neighbors said that HBP and Mark Ruffalo are to blame for the fire. They claimed that the film set was a powder keg due to kerosene, heating oil and other flammable materials being stored at the filming location.

They claimed that they suffered and continue to suffer physical and emotional injuries. In fact, they are now seeking millions of dollars worth of damages. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing case.
