NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans pie maker Simon Hubig Co., whose plant was destroyed in a blaze six months ago, has sued the Kenner company that created and maintained its fire suppression system.
The lawsuit, filed in Orleans Parish Civil District Court, alleges Fire & Safety Commodities’ “system failed, causing the complete destruction of the Hubig’s facility.”
Simon Hubig Co. names Fire & Safety Commodities and two of that firm’s insurance companies, Arch Insurance Co. and Arch Excess and Surplus Insurance Co.
Hubig seeks unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed earlier this month.
Hubig’s facility was destroyed in the early morning hours of July 27.
A woman who answered the phone at Fire & Safety Commodities on Wednesday morning declined comment.
