July 4th Fireworks Cancelled in Several Towns Due to Recent Deadly Explosion

WRAL TV is reporting that some North Carolina towns are canceling their July 4th celebrations after a recent fireworks-related death and a large number of fireworks were destroyed in a related fire. Three people were hospitalized, and one was killed when commercial-grade fireworks detonated earlier this month on a small farm in La Grange. Dozens of firefighters remained on the scene seven hours after the firebomb, which started as a controlled burn in a hay field.
