As I watched this my one of my kids (9 year old) said, "why are they just sitting there watching it and not leaving?". I was thinking the same thing....

Get up and leave folks....

The volunteer fire department has a truck at the games where I see fireworks. It would have been out in minutes.

"Yeah, someone else's property and a place where I like to go is being destroyed! Wheeee!"
