OCEAN CITY, Md. - Officials in Ocean City canceled Sunday night's 4th of July fireworks shows "due to an abundance of caution" following Sunday morning's explosive accident on the beach.
Members of the Ocean City bomb squad and other agencies detonated any remaining fireworks on the beach on Monday.
Police say a person in Ocean City received minor injuries after fireworks for the beach town's 4th of July celebration accidentally went off Sunday morning.
A beachgoer captured the explosive scene on Twitter:
Police say the person was setting up fireworks for Ocean City's fireworks show on the beachfront at Dorchester Street when the accident occurred.
The person refused medical transport to a local hospital. No other people were injured.
