A group representing the victims of a fatal explosion and fire that happened at the Flower Branch complex in August is suing Washington Gas and the company that managed the complex.
Victims of a fire caused by a natural gas explosion last month at a Silver Spring, Maryland, apartment complex plan to sue to seek compensation and legislative changes. Residents of the Flower Branch Apartments have partnered with the advocacy group CASA on the legal action.
