RENFRO VALLEY, Ky. (AP) - Officials say multiple people received minor injuries after a firework landed in the middle of a crowd during a Rockcastle County fireworks show.

Renfro Valley “Blast in the Valley” organizer Bentley Cromer tells news outlets that a vehicle shielded a majority of the crowd from the blast late Sunday as one of the fireworks misfired.

Four people were taken by an ambulance to a local hospital for treatment. Cromer says all four have since been released from the hospital.

The state fire marshal’s office is expected to visit the county this week to investigate the incident.
