Car dealership sues HBO over fire that destroyed building, vintage cars

The owners of an Ellenville, New York, car dealership destroyed by fire are suing an HBO production company for $8 million after the building, its contents and a number of vintage vehicles were destroyed by fire during the filing of the series “I Know This Much to be True.”

The fire was apparently caused by an overheated camera battery that burst into flames after hours.
