The son of an Austin man recently filed suit against an apartment complex, after his father died in a fire that started after lightning hit the complex nearly a year ago. The child's father was sleeping at the time the fire started, and the smoke alarms in his unit did not activate. According to the lawsuit, the smoke detectors and fire alarms in the complex were not properly functioning due to their age and improper maintenance.
