A grass fire?  No wonder it halted the show. Everyone ran to get their bongs.
/And, Dude, I know weed or 420 is the preferred nomenclature.
 
2013-07-05 04:03:39 PM
For farks sake, it was just a grass fire that only delayed the show for 10 mins.Who cares.

rooftop235: Fireworks usually come from China...


That was going to be my comment until I decided to actually read the accompanying story:

"To mark 25 years as sister cities, the City of Nagaoka gave Fort Worth close to $100,000 worth of Japanese fireworks. Mark Wagner with Extreme Pyrotechnics put on Thursday's show. He said that those Japanese fireworks are rare in the United States because they are so expensive. "

Hmm, the reported didn't check his facts very well.  For one, Extreme did NOT shoot the Japanese fireworks, they had their own shooters, Extreme did the second part of the show that did NOT catch fire.  The reason the Japanese fireworks caught fire is because they were shot from tubes that were inside of paper bags to keep moisture out... brilliant!  Also, the owner of Extreme is not "Mark" Wagner, it's Mike Wagner.  And yeah, actually, Rooftop235 is right, a lot of fireworks do come from China, that's where Extreme gets theirs, high quality for good price.

/little brother is the magazine manager for Extreme Pyrotechnics, have to speak up for my own.  He was there rewiring all the Extreme shots after the fire cut the lines, which caused the delay in the show, other than that, the Extreme portion of the show went out without a hitch

Hell, 'tain't nothin'. Seatlle lit off some boats for their fireworks show. just before the mayor tried to blast the citizenry with as mortar

The squadron of 75 Japanese "uh....Cropdusters! Yeah, cropdusters!" standing by should have raised an eyebrow or two.

The delay lasted for more than 10 minutes.

The horror...the horror...

There was an unbelievable fireworks display going on at ocean city in washington I went to.. it was basically redneck paradise.. thousands of cars filled the beach and everyone was setting fireworks off all at once stretching for miles..

and then the grass field lining the beach caught fire and spread quickly due to the high winds off the ocean, but that only made it better

With the craziness on the beach, I'd be surprised if at least one person wasn't killed or maimed badly. there were ambulances racing back and forth all day

DId someone set us up the bomb?

Read the story about the (illegal) firework landing on the four story boat storage thingy, what's this about our mayor?

The Fort Worth show was one of the biggest in the state, thanks in large part to Japan. To mark 25 years as sister cities, the City of Nagaoka gave Fort Worth close to $100,000 worth of Japanese fireworks. Mark Wagner with Extreme Pyrotechnics put on Thursday's show. He said that those Japanese fireworks are rare in the United States because they are so expensive. "We have a lot of stuff that I've never seen," Wagner said, "It ought to be interesting."

It seems like if they are going to do "We have extra nice expensive rare fireworks" shows, they should do a little advertising.  I try to keep up, I read the dallas paper as well as online news, and Ft Worth is not far away.  Tell me about that sort of thing ahead of time and I'd likely go.  Tell me the next day "It started a minor grass fire that lasted 10 minutes" and I'm not all that impressed.

Mikey blasted off an army mortar to start the fireworks. He got .25 seconds of airtime right after the anthem. I'm just following news headline criteria.

sorry /bout the slow response, I was out, on the beach, killing tourists with my mortars.
