Atlantic City Fireworks Show That Went Wrong

I remember standing on the beach in Atlantic City on July 4, 2001, thinking, “Wow, this is great.”

Moments later, I thought, and said out loud, “This can’t be right.”

It was the Atlantic City fireworks on the 4th of July – and, yes, it wasn’t right. Fireworks were being set off on a barge several hundred yards offshore.

In a very light drizzle, one could see that the fireworks, which started shooting into the sky, were quickly shooting every which way – and all at once. While some thought this was the grand finale, it was more of a pretty disaster.

The barge caught fire and burned for several hours, while coast guard officials kept a watchful eye on the area. Thankfully, there were no major injuries.
