Smoke Inhalation

Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP represented 60 tenants in the infamous Schomburg Plaza fire. A fire started in a jammed compactor chute on the 20th floor of the high-rise apartment building. The sprinkler system was not operational, and because of defective materials and workmanship, the fire and smoke escaped through the walls into the apartments. When the fire department arrived, they went into the basement where they put out a small fire, but they did not realize that a much bigger fire was raging on the 20th floor until it was too late to prevent injury to many residents, adults and children.
