Neighbors to take “Big Al” and his fireworks storage biz to Maine high court

Coastal Journal:

The Maine Supreme Judicial Court may be pulled into an ongoing legal battle between neighbors and the owner of a midcoast warehouse used for the storage of consumer fireworks.
The warehouse, owned by Allen Cohen – known locally as “Big Al” – is used to store consumer-grade Class C fireworks that Cohen sells at his retail store on Route 1. Tom and Katie Bryant, who live near the warehouse on JB’s Way, have taken him to court and lost, and say they are appealing next to Maine’s high court.
The Bryants allege that Cohen’s warehouse poses a risk to them and other residents in the area. The structure, which is just over 4,500 square feet and has two more storage containers adjacent to it, is located within 1,000 feet of multiple residences. It is also just 16 feet from the driveway the Bryants use to access their home.
