Edward Norton’s production company sued over fatal fire on set of ‘Motherless Brooklyn’

Edward Norton’s production company is being sued over the fire that took the life of a New York firefighter on the set of the film “Motherless Brooklyn” last week. The suit, which was filed against Class 5 Films by building residents Erica Cruz and George Cruz on Tuesday in New York Supreme Court, alleges that Class 5 maintained “highly flammable equipment” in the basement of the building, and that the fire broke out due to the “defendants’ recklessness, carelessness and negligence.”
