2 hurt when fireworks explode in trunk of car

Posted: Updated:

LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Two men attending a fireworks industry event in Lake Havasu City were injured when fireworks exploded in the trunk of their car. The explosion and resulting fire gutted the car and scattered debris on a highway.

The Today's News-Herald reports that the fireworks began to explode Wednesday while the car was on State Route 95 and that the trunk's contents blew up when the driver pulled off the highway.

One man was hospitalized for burns on his upper torso but the other man in the car refused treatment for his minor injuries.

Fire Marshal Chip Shilosky did not immediately return a call for comment Thursday.

Fire Battalion Chief Mike Quijada says men were attending a Western Pyrotechnics Association event. He says organizers helped dispose of material at the scene.
