n Nevada, if you are in the middle of a fixed-term lease (e.g., a 12-month lease), your landlord cannot increase the rent or any fees unless it's specifically stipulated in the lease agreement. However, once the lease term ends and if you move to a month-to-month tenancy or sign a new lease,... View More

Yes, you can possibly sue the person who caused the fire for negligence or gross negligence. Gross negligence is somewhat harder to prove but could give rise to punitive damages if you sustained bodily injuries from the fire.

You can file claims with the three credit bureaus to correct the record. If they do, problem solved. If not, file suit against the company to correct the error.
