A wildfire that destroyed homes and other buildings in southwest Washington over the summer of 2023 is now the subject of a lawsuit, one that accuses the BNSF Railway of negligence for sparking the fire with an aging train. Law firm Singleton Schreiber filed the lawsuit Wednesday in Skamania Superior Court on behalf of a single plaintiff who lost his housing to the fire. Lance Brooks was forced to evacuate after the fire broke out July 2, according to a statement. “The irresponsible actions of BNSF Railway jeopardized lives, destroyed homes and exhausted the resources of the entire surrounding region,” said lead attorney and managing partner Gerald Singleton.
