San Diego fireworks mishap cuts Fourth of July show to 15 seconds
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (KABC) -- San Diego's Fourth of July "Big Bay Boom" fireworks show was a bust, and the entire mishap was posted online.
Five minutes before the show was supposed to start, a sudden burst of fireworks shot into the air. Officials say all the fireworks were set off at the same time.
What was supposed to be a 20-minute show lasted only about 15 seconds. After about 20 minutes, people waiting for more fireworks were told to go home.
The pyrotechnics company hired to run the show apologized and says there was a technical issue. They're trying to figure out exactly what happened.
