fireworks accident simi valley

Simi Valley's Fourth of July fireworks show at Rancho Santa Susana Community Park was explosive — literally!

28 people were reported injured two minutes into the Southern California town's traditional display after fireworks exploded and shot into the crowd of about 10,000.

Instead of blasting sky high, the pyrotechnics landed and detonated on the ground with sparks bursting at spectators.

What a nightmare!

One attendee remembered:

"There was a big boom. Everybody started running down the street. People were screaming. Everybody was just terrified. People hid in bushes."

Fortunately, the neighborhood event was swarming with police, park rangers, and firefighters who could immediately tend to those who had been burned.

We're just happy no one got seriously hurt during what is supposed to be a happy, family affair!

No foul play was indicated according to police investigator, but we're praying that those responsible learned that such a dangerous accident is NOT an option ever again.

See the frightening video footage …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

    Hope they are all OK. The neighborhood I live in has a lot of Mexicans and Mexican-American. Lots of them seem to go across the border to buy fireworks. I had a great display last night just from my balcony, without having to drive to the formal fireworks.
    That being said, you do have to be careful with fireworks, my late dad lost part of a finger by picking up a can he and his brother put fireworks under. It killed his dream of being a concert pianist.
