Katy Perry urges us to “ignite the light and let it shine” in her song “Firework,” but somehow I don’t think this is quite what that means.
When a building used to store fireworks in Blagoveshchensk, Russia, caught on fire, it wasn’t long before the sky was lit up like a Fourth of July celebration. Sparks, whistles, and loud bangs emanating from the warehouse caused many locals to take to the streets to see what was going on.
More than 130 firefighters helped to put out the blaze, the cause of which is still unknown. Three firefighters were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after the incident.
Watch the explosive chaos unfold below.
Talk about going out with a bang! Thankfully, no one was seriously injured.
