What Happens When a Fireworks Factory Catches Fire? Uh-Oh!


If there’s an ounce of patriotism in you, then you spent last weekend munching hot dogs while clutching old glory, as you watched fireworks go off in the air.

Because what else are you going to do on the Fourth?

But have you ever wondered what happens when the fireworks go off on the ground? Still in their wrapping? Still in the factory that made them?

Well, you’re about to find out.

This footage shows a blaze tearing through a fireworks factory in Columbia. And the result is as beautifully terrifying as you’d imagine:

The good news is that no one was hurt in the blaze (come on, we wouldn’t post the video if there had been) but the surrounding property was burned to a crisp.

Bottom line: be careful with those wiz poppers, folks. They are dangerous.

Let us know what you think of the footage below:
