Cody Ceci named in lawsuit for May incidentAugust 13, 2019 | 10:37 AM

Cody Ceci is being sued in a lawsuit seeking more than $8 million in damages. Ceci's common law partner Jamie Thompson, who is named as a co-defendant in the suit, allegedly set Hana Engel on fire in a freak accident with flaming liquid ethanol burner fuel. The lawsuit states "without checking to determine if the burner had cooled and/or completely extinguished," Thompson squirted the ethanol into the burner, causing "flames and ethanol to jet out of the bottle," which was still in her hands when she "immediately threw the burning bottle in Hana's direction." Engel suffered second- and third-degree burns to 35 percent of her body.
