A Florida fireworks company has formally contested workplace safety citations issued last month by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration following a deadly warehouse explosion in December.

Four employees died and a fifth was seriously injured in the explosion at an Orlando warehouse that housed fireworks owned by St. Petersburg-based Magic in the Sky Florida LLC.

OSHA cited the company, which specializes in pyrotechnics for aerial fireworks displays, for failing to protect warehouse workers, issuing a dozen citations for serious violations and proposing $109,375 in penalties.
