SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A family who lost their Clairemont home after a deadly plane crash in 2017 is suing the people tied to that aircraft.

According to the legal complaint, Lizmarie Serrano and Massimiliano Sansa are suing the charter company, Altitude Aviation, and several other aircraft maintenance companies and plane part manufacturers over the December 2017 crash.

The couple, who rented the home, allege the companies were negligent. They claim the single-engine Beechcraft was not properly inspected or maintained.

The couple was not home at the time of the crash, but their home was completely destroyed, and their belongings were all burned in the subsequent fire.

Serrano and Sansa’s 16-year-old dog died in the fire.

Two passengers on the plane died, while the pilot and a third passenger survived.

The couple is suing for property damages, emotional distress, the cost of legal fees and any other damages the court finds appropriate.

An NTSB investigation revealed the plane crash was a result of a total loss of engine power.
