A truck carrying fireworks for a holiday exploded in the United States. The resource Hypebeast told about it.
In the city of Ocean City, Maryland, they were preparing for the national holiday on July 4 – Independence Day – when at about 10 am local residents heard explosions of firecrackers. It turned out that the truck, which was carrying the entire supply of fireworks for the holiday, exploded prematurely – the fireworks were launched a little earlier than necessary.
According to the source, the firecrackers caught fire in the process of being serviced by the carrier’s employees. Several employees received minor injuries, but no one was seriously injured. And Americans strolling along the beach and parks on a warm morning were very surprised by this impromptu fireworks show.

Local media report that firefighters have successfully extinguished everything and are currently investigating the causes of the explosion. The head of the fire department noted that before unloading the firecrackers, the fire department always designates a “safe zone” around this place – that is, installs fences and warning signs; he believes that it was these security measures that saved bystanders from serious injuries.
The blast forced Ocean City City Hall to cancel two of the 4th July fireworks, as it was no longer possible to deliver them in such a short time.
We previously reported that the first electric Tesla Model S Plaid sold caught fire for no apparent reason, blocking the driver inside.
