Lawsuit settled in death of 6 in 2010 apartment fire in Minneapolis
Building owners are responsible for checking smoke detectors and replacing them every 10 years.
The enduring mystery over the cause and origin of a 2010 fire that killed six people in a Minneapolis apartment didn't hinder a settlement last week in the wrongful-death lawsuit against the building's owner.
The fast-moving blaze, which gutted several apartments and an Irish pub at 3001 E. Lake St., was the city's deadliest fire in nearly 30 years. A bartender from the pub and a family of five staying with him, including three children, died of smoke inhalation and burns.
