We decided to go to our city's fireworks tonight. Parking is a pain, leaving is usually a pain, but we went anyway. About 3 minutes into the show, apparently a tree got set afire, and the show continued for about another 5 minutes before it was stopped permanently. At least 5 firetrucks, a few paramedics and the entire police force was dispatched to go all Barney Fife all over the place.
I hope no one was hurt, but it really was kind of funny in an overly ironic sort of way.
