The group operating the "Fireball" ride at the Ohio State Fair, Amusements of America, is involved with five fairs in New York State through the rest of the summer. One person was killed, and seven others were injured, when that ride malfunctioned in Columbus, OH Wednesday night, according to officials.

Here are the five shows Amusements of America is working with across New York:

Of the five shows, the Ogdensburg International Seaway Festival is the only one going on right now. An official with the festival told us they only have room for smaller rides, and they will continue operating Thursday.

The New York State Department of Labor will be re-inspecting all rides managed by Amusements of America.
