The widow of a Columbia fireman killed in the line of duty is suing the University of Missouri.
Lt. Bruce Britt was killed while responding to a collapsing walkway at University Village Apartments in February.
Leigh Britt filed a lawsuit in Boone County Circuit Court that alleges University Officials knew conditions at their apartment complex were dangerous.
The 5-page document alleges her husbandâ??s death was the result of the Curatorsâ?? failure to correct those dangerous conditions.
Brittâ??s surviving daughter is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit that is asking for a settlement of at least $25,000.
University of Missouri spokesman John Fougere told KRCG 13 that he had no comment on the lawsuit at this time.
