Tomball fire sparks lawsuit against Cypress contractor
A couple is suing a Cypress-area deck builder after a fire damaged their home in Tomball.
Peerless Indemnity, as subrogee of Tomball residents Scott and Patricia Ramey, filed a lawsuit on Feb. 9 in Harris County District Court against Matts Custom Decks, of Cypress, citing negligence and breach of warranties.
Peerless Indemnity says on Sept. 15, 2010, a garage fire damaged the Ramseys' Imperial Creek Drive home. According to the brief, in the summer of 2010, the couple hired Matts Custom Decks to add a patio, complete with lights and fans, to their home, and the fire was most likely caused by wiring insulation damaged by the company.
