Palisades Landlord Of NYC Building Fire, May Face Charges

Landlord Maria Hrynenko of the Palisades, owner of the two New York City buildings that were destroyed in a gas explosion that killed two men, may face manslaughter charges. Authorities are assessing Hrynenko’s culpability in the incident however her lawyer, Thomas Curtis places blame on Con Edison, the utility company that supplied gas to the buildings. Investigators are working off of previous claims of illegal gas line tapping from last summer where Con Edison workers found a restaurant gas line routed up to tenant apartments. Curtis maintains Hrynenko’s innocence, pointing out that her own son was injured in the explosion after she sent him and a contractor to answer a call about a possible gas leak.
