Legal Question

Asked on: 9/25/13, 9:43 pm

Almost two months ago my wife was frying on the stove. A fire erupted and in a panic she doused the flame with water, which cause the flames to erupt upwards. My landlord had an inspection done regarding the restoration cost. He has been paid $6,000 for the damages from his insurance company. Today I received a call from a law firm representing the insurance company telling me I am liable for the damages. At first, I thought this was fraud. Am I liable for theses damages as a tenant?
