TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A company says it’s investigating a computer glitch that created a 30-minute delay before the grand finale of a Fourth of July fireworks show in Oklahoma.

The Tulsa World (https://bit.ly/1NS3rzJ ) reports that the fireworks show at Saturday’s Folds of Honor FreedomFest fizzled just after 15 minutes it began.

Pyro Shows of Texas vice president Steve Frantz says the company’s computer system that sets off the shells had lost power. Frantz’s team had to search for a back-up power source to reboot the firing system.

Frantz says the company hasn’t determined what they’ll do to compensate the sponsor, River Parks Authority, for the issue. But Frantz says company officials will have a discussion with the organization once they learned exactly what went wrong.
