    It wasn't fireworks, it was expired dynamite that had been discarded in the dump by public works and they were in the process of defusing it. Things didn't go as planned, there was a lot of property damage to homes nearby which included windows shattering, roof, ceiling and wall damages. Three employees were injured and have probably permanently lost their hearing.
