Fireworks cause early morning house fire

Fireworks cause vehicle fire at Dunwoody home

And because of fireworks firefighters have responded to multiple structure and grass fires throughout the day, despite the risk firefighters say this happens every year.

Hershey Entertainment says there was no malfunction involved in fireworks that started a brush fire near the launch site July 4 and caused the show to end early.

The home has extensive damage on the second floor and water damage on the first.

The Hays Fire Department responded to several fireworks call on the July Fourth holiday.

Neighbors told fire crews that the house was vacant and squatters were seen going in and out of the home.

Fire and police officials in New Haven are investigating two fires that broke out overnight.


"If they leave the ground or explode, they're illegal", Hare said as he browsed the shelves of fireworks at a tent near South Parker Road and Jewell Avenue. Investigators believe the cause was the improper disposal of fireworks debris in the bed of the pick-up truck.

The home, located near Main St. and Paradise Rd.in Lamont, was set ablaze after the fire spread from the couch to the rest of the home.

The garage fire did damage the garage, but thankfully no one was injured. Officials found fireworks debris on that balcony and in the street.

Most of the fires - more than 60 of them - were in dumpsters, as people tossed fireworks in to hear the loud boom and it caught fire.

No injuries were reported, the department said.
