NEW ORLEANS- New Orleans pie maker Simon Hubig Company Inc., whose plant was destroyed in a blaze six months ago, has sued the Kenner company that created and maintained its fire suppression system.

The Times-Picayune reports the lawsuit, filed in New Orleans Civil District Court, alleges Fire & Safety Commodities' "system failed, causing the complete destruction of the Hubig's facility."

Simon Hubig Company names Fire & Safety Commodities and two of that firm's insurance companies, Arch Insurance Company and Arch Excess and Surplus Insurance Company. Hubig seeks unspecified damages in the lawsuit filed earlier this month.

Hubig's facility was destroyed in the early morning hours of July 27.

The newspaper reports a woman who answered the phone at Fire & Safety Commodities Wednesday morning declined comment.
