HBO sued for starting 2019 car dealership fire, residents say they were exposed to toxins


Residents of the small New York town of Ellenville say that a fire at a car dealership has left them irreparably harmed.

According to Complex, the 2019 fire was at a filming location for the HBOI mini-series “I Know this Much is True.” The series starred Mark Ruffalo and Kathyrn Hahn and was released in 2020.

The crew was not filming when the massive fire started.

They had been using the location for about a month but had moved on to a different filming location when the dealership burst into flames.

People living near the area say the fire exposed them to dangerous toxins and carcinogens which ruined their homes as well.

The multi-million dollar lawsuit specifically cites HBO and Mark Ruffalo’s production company.

Neighbors claim that the production team didn’t do a great job of repairing the area after the fire and that gasoline can still be smelled coming from the property now three years later.

HBO and Ruffalo did not provide a comment. The dealership also sued the production company.
