PHILADELPHIA — The widow of a Philadelphia firefighter has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of a vacant warehouse that burned down in April 2012, killing her husband and another firefighter.

Fire Capt. Robert Neary and Lt. Daniel Sweeney died in the blaze.

Neary's wife, Diane Neary, says in a lawsuit filed Sept. 26 the owners failed to address years of complaints that the warehouse was a dangerous haven for looters, drug addicts, squatters and prostitutes.
