Fireworks, In Reverse

Premature Ignition
July 4th fireworks in San Diego Bay were cancelled last night after they all pretty much simultaneously exploded on three of the four barges they were to launch from.
Garden State Fireworks, the company that was producing the show, released the following statement:

"The Garden State Fireworks team will be working throughout the night to determine what technical problem caused the entire show to be launched in about 15 seconds.
"We apologize for the brevity of the show and the technical difficulties. More information will be posted when available."

Takeaway: Mistakes can lead to pretty pictures.
