OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A bomb squad searched through damaged fireworks that exploded on a Maryland beach ahead of a scheduled Fourth of July display and how they should be removed.

WTOP reports the Ocean City Fire Department says multiple agencies, including the town’s bomb squad and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will evaluate fireworks damaged during Sunday’s accident to determine how to remove and destroy them.

Part of the display went up in a cloud of smoke Sunday morning after one of the fireworks accidentally discharged. Authorities say no beachgoers were hurt, but several fireworks handlers suffered minor injuries and the evening fireworks display was canceled.
