Picture 53 A production company behind USA's "Burn Notice" is being sued for making a "big explosion" that damaged property.

TVM Prods allegedly agreed to lease a property in Miami-Dade, Fla., from Park Square Commercial-F1 for the purpose of filming an episode from Season 4 of the show. The property manager says the contract stipulated that TVM was supposed to leave the grounds in the same pre-use condition.

Boom.
Park Square says it incurred damage including chips and smoke-stain, as well as lingering damage to walls and floors. In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Florida court, it wants TVM to pay unspecified compensation for the production company's alleged unjust enrichment.

We've reached out to USA for comment.
