This happy 4th of July fireworks celebration quickly escalated into a dangerous accident in a matter of seconds.

The video show a group of family and friends gathered around celebrating the 4th of July and lighting up some fireworks. What starts off as harmless fun quickly turns dangerous when the fireworks start to flare and fly across the backyard in every direction, even hitting the person behind the phone who is taking video of the whole event. Suddenly, you can hear and see a large boom and flash of an explosion followed by people running and falling all over the place.

Hopefully no one was seriously injured but let this video serve as a warning that although fireworks are fun and spectacular they are also extremely dangerous and should be handled with extreme caution.
