STEWARTVILLE, Minn. - Behind the scenes of the Stewartville firework show, the Stewartville Fire Department is responsible for getting the show up and running.
They spent their morning and afternoon of the Fourth of July wiring up the firework show so that it's ready to light up for the community that night, but they used to have a different method of assembling the explosives.
"Bringing the wires into boxes that we can fire them off with triggers rather than in the old days when we lit them with a broom handle and flare which was much more dangerous. Probably not code either," explains firefighter Jarett Jones.
The Stewartville firework show is scheduled for 10 PM Wednesday night.
