A Mizzou graduate student is suing the owners of a Columbia apartment complex after a fire destroyed most of his property.
Court documents show Ryan Freeman could not retrieve his belongings from his unit at Ash Street Place Apartments. A fire destroyed the apartment on April 9.
Freemanâ??s lawsuit claims Mills Properties never notified residents that the building was not up to fire codes. Mills Properties spokesman Mark Farnen told KRCG 13 that the owners are in the process of complying with fire codes.
Columbia fire officials said Mills Properties officials have until November to install pull-down fire alarms.
