Fort Worth's fireworks show had to be stopped on Thursday
night when debris from the fireworks caused grass fires.
Officials with Extreme Pyrotechnics, who setup the show in
downtown Ft. Worth, said some of the shells did not go as high in the air as
they should have.
Debris from those shells falling to the ground caused the
grass fires, which grew large enough that officials became concerned.
"I decided to shut
the show down for safety reasons because there's a lot of people out here,"
said Mike Wagner of Extreme Pyrotechnics.
firefighters worked to extinguish the grass fires and the show resumed after a
15-20 minute delay.
