ACL Burn Victims File Personal Injury Suit

Comments Off

In September, we reported about a fire at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Today, the Austin American Statesman reports that the fire victims have filed a personal injury suit for their damages. The article sets out the basis of the complaint:

The fire was caused, the suit says, when the propane tank was overfilled by the leasing company; the valve that was supposed to stop overfilling malfunctioned or was overridden; and heat from the exhaust pipe of the RV’s generator, placed too close to the propane tank, caused the gas in the tank to expand and be released by a pressure valve.
