Fireworks Producer Reaches Explosion Settlement

A Kilgore business, which suffered a devastating explosion in 2003, has reached an insurance settlement. It was July 2003 that Lamb Entertainment exploded. Three people were killed. Dozens of homes were damaged in the area off Pentecost Road.

Joe Lamb, the owner, later sued his insurance company over coverage that would have paid him $4 million in excess policy coverage. The amount of the settlement has not been disclosed. Lamb reopened his business in Gilmer in 2004.
