‘I Know This Much Is True’ Producers And HBO Sued For Fire That reportedly Ruined Homes and produced Toxic Fumes.
Residents near an upstate New York car dealership that was used as a location for the HBO miniseries I Know This Much Is True are now suing the producers and declaring that a fire ruined their homes and exposed them to toxic fumes.
The 2019 fire at the location in Ellenville, NY was used for a month before a fire broke out in May 2019. The fire caused equipment to explode. The legal action names EP Mark Ruffalo and HBO as reported by TMZ on Sunday.
HBO declined to comment and Ruffalo has not yet commented. Ruffalo is casted in the series along with Rosie O’Donnell.
The lawsuit claims that the on site the production stored kerosene, heating oil, and other flammable materials. They also said that the after effects was not cleaned up by the production team. The location was described as an “uncovered and unabated debris pile, toxin spill” that exposes residents to “wind-driven dust and gaseous dispersion.”
The owners of the dealership earlier sued Calling Grace Productions, the company behind the series, for the fire. There is no indication whether that has been set on.
