From the AP:
A Fort Wayne fireworks store broke out in flames, causing numerous loud booms and heavy smoke as bottle rockets and other items exploded inside.
Fire Chief Pete Kelly says the Pyromaniac Fireworks store was closed when the fire broke out Wednesday morning and that he knew of no injuries.
Fireworks continued exploding more than two hours after the fire started, even as crews poured water on the leveled building from aerial trucks. A cause of the fire on the city’s south side wasn’t immediately know, but Kelly said no other buildings appeared to have been damaged.
Dave Umber says he walked out of his hardware store about a block away and saw flames going perhaps 20 feet in the air.
