Kittitas County landowners suing over Taylor Bridge Fire

KITTITAS COUNTY, Wash. -- Dozens of landowners in Kittitas County are suing the state and two construction companies for damages related to the 2012 Taylor Bridge Fire.

A lawyer representing 73 property owners says the case seeking millions of dollars was filed Tuesday in King County Superior Court.

The suit names Conway Construction and Rainier Steel for starting the fire. Investigators say welding at a construction site sparked it.

The fire destroyed more than 60 homes and dozens of other buildings.
