Really? the news broadcast I was watching before posting this thread said something along the lines of it being regarded as "the safest fireworks market in the region". Do the other markets explode multiple times a year or something?

Yes.

Gotta be honest here. We love our damn fireworks so much that even if this tragedy happened (again?) I don't think it'll stop the yearly Firework Train.
