Partial settlement reached in lawsuits from furniture store fire

A partial settlement has been reached in lawsuits stemming from last year's furniture store fire that killed nine Charleston, South Carolina firefighters. Families of eight of the nine firefighters sued various furniture manufacturers, a building contractor and companies that built and installed fire doors at the Sofa Super Store where the fire happened. Court paperwork shows 12 defendants have settled for $5.6 million to be divided among the families. 18 defendants remain in the case.
