BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Birmingham Housing Authority is defending itself after a deadly explosion at the Marks Village Apartments. Attorneys for the housing authority have responded to a lawsuit filed in the case.

In court filings Friday, the housing authority claims it had no knowledge or sufficient information about many of the accusations it faced in the lawsuit. The explosion killed Tyrennis Mabry and injured several others back in December.

In the lawsuit, filed by Mabry's family, Alagasco and the housing authority are accused of having ample warning on the dangers of the gas lines that were installed in Marks Village in 1951. Mabry's attorney claims the NTSB gave warnings in 1990, 1992 and 2012. The housing authority says they had no knowledge about that or about complaints of possible gas leaks reported in that area.
