BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - The widow of Buffalo Fire Lieutenant Charles McCarthy is suing the City of Buffalo for the death of her husband.

McCarthy and firefighter Jonathan Croom died in the August 2009 fire at a Genesee Street deli.

The allegations accuse the city of improper inspection of the building and the Buffalo Fire Department for a lack of safety procedures.

A spokesman for Mayor Byron Brown declined to comment on the case.
