Ashley Greene
is being sued over the fire she started in her West Hollywood apartment that killed her dog and injured the man who helped rescue fleeing residents.

Adrian Mayorga just filed a lawsuit against the "Twilight" star -- obtained by TMZ -- in which he claims he was hurt while running through the smoke-filled hallways, while yelling and screaming for residents to flee. 

The doorman claims he suffered exhaustion, dehydration and smoke inhalation and ended up in the hospital.

Four residents in neighboring units have also sued, claiming the fire wreaked havoc on them with soot and water damage.

The fire started when a candle in Ashley's unit set the sofa ablaze, killing her Fox Terrier, Marlo.  A second dog survived.

hope she has any of her twilight money still handy . though the door man was not gong to know he would wind up spending his work day running through a burning place and thus wind up with the reason he is suing her now.

She should be sued by all the gays in Hollywood for the way she worked for Prop 8. She's a hater! Never forget. Search on TMZ for her Chick Fil-A trip at the height of all the Prop 8 madness. Dumb move by a super dumb hater.

it sounds like people on here are suggesting that the doorman is in the wrong for running down the hall, warning people of the fire...he never would have gone to the hospital for dehydration and whatever else happened to him. People have serious cognitive issues. Do you think it's better that he not do anything, letting others possibly burn to death??? WTF is wrong with you! He did a good deed & some of you are saying he shouldn't have. Some people have rocks for brains.

This was a tragedy all around, so very sad. An accident, but regardless that some of this is almost surely just a grab for money, that is what insurance is for. A lot of people were probably financially harmed at least, and insurance is for accidents. I really feel terrible for her, but these suits are not personal, some of them are legitimate, the others, well, that 'ilk' will always be around where there is celeb money.

I think that this is ridiculous! The fire happened almost 8 months ago and these people are just now doing something. Ashley Greene is amazing! It's not like she intentionally set fire to the sofa! I personally think that it is a little too late to be suing her now. They should have taken action sooner. I am Ashley Greene's biggest fan! I love you Ashley and I am sorry for all the problems that these people are causing you! <3
