Firefighters' widows file lawsuit after fatal wall collapse

Casey Flanscha and Allison Hoffman initiated legal action against C.S. Davidson Inc., the company that the city of York contracts for engineering jobs

By FireRescue1 Staff

YORK, Pa. — The widows of two firefighters who died after a factory building collapsed on them are suing an engineering company the city contracts for services.

York Daily Record reported that Casey Flanscha and Allison Hoffman, the widows of York City Fire/Rescue Services firefighters Ivan Flanscha and Zachary Anthony, filed separate court documents against C.S. Davidson Inc.

The reason for the legal action against the company has not been released, and C.S. Davidson Inc. president and CEO Kerryn Fulton said they were not involved with the factory until the city requested that the company provide “general consultation” after Flanscha and Anthony’s deaths.

Flanscha and Anthony were on the fourth floor of the 130-year-old building on March 22 when it collapsed. The factory was being converted into modern apartments at the time of the incident.
