Fireworks Fiasco

During a Chinese New Year celebration late Tuesday night, fireworks that were set off caused an inferno that burned down homes, killed three people, and injured many others in central Thailand.

The problem was that the fireworks were set off too close to a neighborhood in town. From the video clip, you can also see that the fireworks were also set off too low, which caused the fire. The lack of execution burned down twenty houses.
