Mattress fire property owners face contempt of court

Local News

State Environmental Officials are acting against the owners of that former mattress warehouse in Erie that went up in flames in August of 2016.

The State Department of Environmental Protection is asking a judge to find the owners of the property in contempt of an August court order. 

El Grande Enterprises was ordered to restrict vehicle traffic on the property in the 1300 block of West 20th Street.  The court also ordered owners to remove all burned waste and mattresses from the site.  

The DEP contends the owners have failed to do that.

We’ll have reaction from the neighborhood tonight on JET 24 Action News at 11.
