DC Library Sues Contractor In Response to April Fire at Georgetown Branch

The Washington Post reports... "The city is seeking more than $13 million in damages from the Hyattsville contractor that was heading renovation of the Georgetown public library when a fire broke out there in late April.

Officials allege negligence on the part of Dynamic Corp., which was handling exterior improvements at the historic branch. A subcontractor for Dynamic was removing lead-based paint from second-floor windows, and it was workers' use of electric heat guns that District fire investigators concluded had ignited materials near the roofline on the building's south side.
