Four Killed, One Injured in Tragic Fireworks Warehouse Fire

Fox 35 has reported that another employee has died after a fire ignited at the Magic in the Sky fireworks warehouse located at 901 Central Florida Pkwy, Orlando, FL 32824. 

The fire broke out around 7 p.m. Thursday, December 1, 2022, at the Central Florida Parkway storage facility for Magic in the Sky. At the time, there were eight employees in the building. Drivers along the Central Florida Parkway described billowing flames engulfing the building that contained the Magic in the Sky unit, a Texas-based entertainment services company, and many other business storage units. Fire officials were able to contain the fire to the single unit, but five employees were taken to the hospital for injuries. Four of the employees died from their injuries and the other remains hospitalized. The Fire Marshal’s Office is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

Compensation For Victims of Warehouse Fires

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents people who have been seriously injured while at work, including accidents in large warehouses and storage facilities. Here are some thoughts from Michael regarding the legal options available to injured workers and their families:

"Many workers, unless they are independent contractors, may qualify for workers’ compensation. But this may not be their only option for financial compensation. If the injury requires medical treatments and rehabilitation, consultation with a lawyer that handles work injury claims can be very beneficial in making sure the injured worker receives a full and fair recovery. Further, there may be other claims the injured worker can make in addition to worker’s compensation claims against others who have legal fault and liability. Again, consultation with a work injury lawyer is vital to help identify all potential liabilities that led to the accident. Faulty equipment, unsafe practices, or other negligent hazards could have played a part in the incident."

"When a fire breaks out in a warehouse, it can cause severe injuries or even death. It is crucial for companies to maintain the highest standard of care when dealing with sources of heat energy, explosives, and flammable fluids because stock products may be flammable or susceptible to catching on fire or exploding. If warehouses do not adequately train employees on how to deal with a fire or about general risks and precautions of working with a particular piece of equipment or product, this negligence increases the risk of dangers. Additionally, if the owner of the warehouse failed to train or warn employees about fire dangers in the warehouse, or even failed to maintain training on fire evacuation routes, they could be held liable. Victims injured in warehouse fires, or their surviving family, can learn more by discussing their potential case with an experienced work injury lawyer."
