The explosion peeled the top off the 18-wheeler truck." .... even hours after the explosion you can still smell fireworks in the air.... it’s believed all those hurt are employees of the company putting on the fireworks. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090704/ap_on_re_us/us_fireworks_explosion "It looked like 40 minutes worth of fireworks went off in four seconds."
