This guy obviously does not realize that storing fireworks next to a heater might not be a real good idea.

Lots of illegal stuff there (if you live in California). Those two stacks of unboxed items on the left are 'cakes'. Roman candles on the right. Pretty sure the flat packs down front contain small mortar systems (plastic launch tube with six projectiles).

Where is the heater?

And I do believe that fireworks get shipped in trucks that get hotter than any temperature youd find in a residence. Fireworks displays are set up outside in 90+ degree temperatures all the time without incident.

Might want a humidifier to keep down risk of static discharge. I love fireworks, they're finally legal here about two years ago.

Looks like a gas wall heater on the wall to the right... but there's some stuff blocking it... so hard to be sure.

AC unit on the left wall, high up.

Heater on the right wall. I have never seen an AC unit that looks like a wall heater.

Heater or not there are few places in the USA where heat is used during the summer. Even if the heat was turned on it is low enough temp to not be an issue.

True dat... and there is little observable furniture in that room... so likely a spare space... But of course the loaded question is, how long have those fireworks been stored there? Are fireworks places open now, a month before the Fourth?

Will fireworks be safe in my trunk when it’s hot outside?
Consumer fireworks are tested in ovens at high temperatures and should only ignite if a flame comes in contact with their fuse. This test is required by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and is referred to as the thermal stability test. All legal consumer fireworks sold in the United States must pass this test. Yet another reason it is so very important to purchase from a reputable, reliable, year-round fireworks store.

Good to 167F
1-2.41Thermal Stability:A test of explosive materials to ensure they do not ignite spontaneously or undergo marked decomposition when subjected to a temperature of 75C for forty-eight (48) consecutive hours

An ounce of prevention? Pilot light? Malfunction? Gas leak?

Yeah the pilot light in the A/C unit could fail leading to gas build up and then if someone lit a match in there it could go boom.
