Fireworks in Ocean City, Maryland, accidentally went off during the daytime and it ruined the show that was suppose to go down at night!
It’s not clear exactly WHO set the fireworks off or “how.” As a result, all fireworks celebrations in Ocean City have been canceled!
Fourth of July fireworks shows are cancelled in Ocean City, Maryland, after some of the pyrotechnics were accidentally fired on Sunday morning, and the unplanned explosions were caught on video.
What was initially called in as a vehicle fire at about 10:30 a.m. was determined to actually be an accidental fireworks discharge, the Ocean City Fire Department said.
Workers were beginning to set up on the beach for one of the city’s two holiday firework displays when the explosives were unintentionally set off, the fire department said.
Employees with the fireworks company had minor injuries but refused transport to the hospital, and no bystanders reported any injuries, the fire department said.
“Prior to the fireworks being off loaded from the vehicle, Fire Marshals secure a safe zone around the fireworks and put other safety protocols in place,” said Ocean City Fire Chief Richie Bowers. “It is this very zone and safety protocols that kept anyone else from being injured.”
