A Mascoutah couple is suing their insurance agency, claiming the company failed to honor their coverage after a fire.

Joseph and Lisa Fournie filed a lawsuit in St. Clair County Circuit Court on Sept, 10, claiming J.C. Reinneck Insurance Agency Inc., John C. Reinneck and Country Mutual Insurance Company are all at fault after allegedly failing to honor fire insurance coverage.

The Fournies claim they were denied partial coverage after a fire ripped through their property located at 10735 Fournie Lane in June 2015. The couple claims that prior to the fire, they were assured they were fully covered if such an event occurred. Upon filing their claim, the couple alleges they were told only a portion of their personal property would be covered. The Fournies claim the Insurance agents and companies are at fault for failing to fully cover their personal property, the suit states.

The Fournies are seeking $15,000 from each defendant exclusive of interest or cost. They are represented in this case by B. Jay Dolwing of Sterling and Dowling, P.C., in Fairview Heights.
