Long Island fireworks mishap at home injures 4, including 12-year-old girl

Four people were injured and several cars were damaged in a fireworks accident at a Long Island home, Suffolk County police said.

The incident happened on July 4th around 10 p.m. at a home on Foxrun Court in Port Jefferson Station.

According to police, many people were watching a fireworks display at the home when a firework went astray.

Two men, a woman and a girl were injured, and several cars parked on the block sustained damage, police said. Police said the four were patrons, not setting off fireworks.

Police told FOX 5 NY that "terrible things" happen when people have no experience setting off fireworks. They expect arrests "imminently."

All four victims were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital:

  • Patrice Ambroise, 38, of Mount Sinai, is being treated for burns and a serious leg injury.
  • Kieran Doyle, 30, of Selden, is being treated for burns and a severed finger.
  • A 30-year-old woman and an 8-year-old girl were treated for minor injuries.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact the Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652.
