Auto-Owners Insurance Company filed a complaint on Aug. 17 in Cook County Circuit Court against Ability Plumbing & Sewerage Company, alleging that the plumbing company caused a fire in the void space above unit 6 at the Park Willow property.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that in June 2015, Auto-Owners Insurance Company suffered damages resulting from the fire at the Park Willow property.
