GLADSTONE, Mich. (AP) - A fireworks display in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula ended up shorter than planned after officials say a test shot accidentally ignited most of the pyrotechnics early.

Gladstone Public Safety Director Paul Geyer tells the Daily Press of Escanaba (https://bit.ly/29i4jEv ) that the test shot Monday night set off a box of fireworks, causing other boxes to ignite. Geyer says the remaining fireworks were set off during the Fourth of July display.

No one was injured.

In a statement, the city says winds blew the test shot toward the other fireworks. The city says it plans to seek a refund or schedule another future show.
