CHICAGO - Homeowners in Rockton have filed a class-action lawsuit against Chemtool following last week's massive fire.

Rockton residents are suffering from health issues because of the smoke, according to the suit claims.
In addition, residents also have to deal with toxic odors and damaged homes.
The lawsuit is seeking more than $50,000 in damages.
