by Ponce Law | July 2nd, 2020

NASHVILLE, TN – A lawsuit has been filed regarding an apartment fire that killed two brothers in Nashville last year, according to a report by WKRN.

24-year-old Jamarcus Carney and 20-year-old Cedric Fitzgerald died in the blaze that broke out just before 3 a.m. on June 29, 2019 at a housing complex on Edgehill Avenue and 14th Avenue.

The family of the two victims has filed a lawsuit against Metro Nashville, citing deficiencies that posed potential safety hazards at the complex, including code violations.  Among the problems cited were smoke detectors and alarms that were not functioning or were functioning improperly.
