2 More Lawsuits Filed After Fatal Orange County Fireworks Warehouse Fire

 Thursday, March 30, 2023


Two more lawsuits have been filed against several companies, including SeaWorld Entertainment, for a December explosion and fire at an Orange County fireworks company’s warehouse that lead to the deaths of four people and one person being severely burned.

The estate of Lindsey Phillips, one of the victims in the fire is suing Magic in the Sky, Magic in the Sky Florida LLC, and several other entities, as well as SeaWorld.

The lawsuit accuses Magic in the Sky of negligence, claiming they violated the law because the warehouse where fireworks were being stored and repaired was not permitted or approved, that Phillips did not receive proper training and failed to install proper fire safety equipment, including smoke alarms or detectors.

The lawsuit also accuses SeaWorld Entertainment of negligence because it said the company was in a joint venture with Magic in the Sky and therefore should have made sure the company was following regulations.

An Orange County commissioner in December learned the business that was holding the fireworks had permits to store furniture in the warehouse, not fireworks.
