VIDEO: The explosions of fireworks heard Sunday sent beachgoers scrambling in Ocean City. Ocean City Bomb Squad personnel, ATF, and Maryland State Fire Marshal’s Bomb Squad are just a few of the agencies now investigating. What was supposed to be a downtown show with live music and an array of colors filling the sky at Northside Park ended before it even began with Starfire Corporation employees receiving minor injuries. The fireworks unintentionally discharged around 10:30 AM. Multiple beachgoers captured the boom now being echoed nationwide. “At the truck out there, there were huge explosions all around the truck,” said one beachgoer. “The police were on the scene. They were trying to clear the boardwalk,” said one woman.
