A bootleg fireworks fail on some random guy's street? You almost expect that on July 4. But the seventh-largest U.S. city screwing up? That's more noteworthy!
The July 4 fireworks show in San Diego ended abruptly after a malfunction on three barges in the city's coastal bay caused all the explosives to go off at the same time.
An extravaganza that was supposed to last 25-30 minutes was compressed into about that many seconds. Silver lining: those 25-30 seconds were awesome!!
