Four months after a fire aboard a dive boat off the coast of Southern California killed 34 passengers, attorneys representing families of those who died have filed a lawsuit, reports ABC News.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by a specialized team at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Early on, one possible cause was believed to be lithium ion batteries that were likely being charged to power diving equipment like cameras and lights.
