A tenant in a building where a fire broke out on a New York City movie set, killing a firefighter, is suing actor Edward Norton’s production company for $7 million.

The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday, the same day mourners gathered at the funeral for Lt. Michael Davidson.

Davidson was overcome by smoke early Friday at the Harlem building where “Motherless Brooklyn,” a movie starring Norton, Bruce Willis, Willem Dafoe and Alec Baldwin, was being filmed.

In the lawsuit, Erica Cruz says she was forced to “run for her life” and suffered “severe and permanent personal injuries” and property loss.

Cruz blamed the fire on Class 5 Films’ “carelessness.” The lawsuit says the company did not warn tenants when they became aware of the fire.

The production company had no immediate comment.
