Fire victims sue Omni La Costa Resort in San Diego
Homeowners in Carlsbad, California filed a lawsuit on October 10 against Omni La Costa Resort and Spa, located in the San Diego area hills, for a fire that occurred on May 14 and burned 27 structures and more than 600 acres of land, the Seaside Courier reported.
The lawsuit alleges that the fire was the result of the resort staff’s negligence. The suit, which is seeking an unspecified amount for damages, claimed that Omni staff started the fire while using equipment, possibly a lawnmower or maintenance cart. Their negligence to prevent the fire from both occurring and spreading directly led to the destruction of nearby property and land. Most of the evidence is based off of small scraps of metal found near the fire’s starting point.
