Tenants File Suit against Avalonbay in Wake of Fire

The devastating seven-alarm inferno that displaced about 1,000 residents of a luxury apartment building is a direct result of a real estate company's negligence, a class-action lawsuit filed by homeless tenants of the Avalon at Edgewater alleges. The civil lawsuit, filed in Bergen County Superior Court on January 26, claims hundreds of tenants of the complex, as well as residents in neighboring homes, suffered economic losses because of direct actions of AvalonBay. About 1,000 people were displaced from their homes as a result of the massive fire, half of them permanently. Many pets also died in the blaze. The plaintiffs are seeking a jury trial. Officials claim two AvalonBay maintenance workers accidentally touched off the spectacular blaze the afternoon of Jan. 21. Edgewater police said the workers were performing plumbing work behind a wall on the first floor with a blowtorch when the fire started. Avalon's workers didn't call 911 for 15 minutes. Within hours, one of the two buildings in the complex had been reduced to ash. More than 230 units were destroyed and the fire smoldered for days.
