ORLANDO, FLORIDA. – During a burn ban, there are serious consequences for setting off fireworks that lead to brush fires. 

But Disney World is allowed to continue its three firework shows.

The theme park canceled fireworks in 1998, when brush fires scorched Central Florida.

Disney World recently suspended campfires at its resorts because of the burn ban, but the firework shows continue, and the Firefighters Union said small embers from the Star Wars show are starting brush fires.

And that’s a problem when nearly all of Central Florida is under a burn ban.

“It’s over and over again. You can see the different spots we’ve had fires,” said Tim Stromsnes, president of the Reedy Creek Firefighter’s Association.

He said there are new flare-ups nearly every night.
