super lies about source of fire to mngmt co.

Posted by East 81st Street tenant on November 03, 1998 at 14:42:19:

From 9-11pm last night the old, unused chimney attached to my building billowed smoke into the building. The fire department was called, responded, dragged a hose up to the roof, and put out the fire in the chimney. The firemen said it was caused by a dirty old unused chimney badly in need of a cleaning.

The super was called just before the fire department arrived and was alerted to the problem. He did not climb the stairs to the top of the building, nor did he go to the roof to inspect the problem. he did lie to the management company this morning and tell them that the problem happened in the adjacent building. (Despite signs of heavy water damage on the carpet in the hallway).

The management company now believes that the incident occurred in the adjacent building and that the tenants who are upset are the ones who are lying.

What is the best recourse in a situation like this?

This is the same management company who promised to replace the carpet in the hallways several months ago after a tenant dispute caused blood stains, but has yet to do so and responded rudely when pressed on this matter as well today.
