A fire that damaged several posh celebrity-owned apartments at 75 Central Park West last spring has now ignited a lawsuit.

The rags left by workers during a renovation at actress Amy Irving’s $9 million three-bedroom apartment at 75 Central Park West started a fire that damaged actor Hank Azaria’s apartment a few floors up.

Now Azaria, who was once married actress Helen Hunt, is suing for $58,000 in damages, according to the New York Post.

Another neighbor, retired chemical company executive Ronald Ostrow, is also claiming $22,000 in repairs, according to a lawsuit filed by insurer AIG Property in Manhattan Supreme Court against A&J Wood Floors. [NYP]Christopher Cameron
