In a new video on Mashable[1], a whopping 20,000 pounds of fireworks and other assorted explosives were detonated by authorities who were ordered to destroy them.


The Midland Police Department in Texas was court ordered to detonate around 20,000 pounds of fireworks over a three-day period.

Luckily for us, one of these fiery yet dazzling events was caught on video. According to the department, the fireworks were seized by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Local bomb squads were also in attendance to assist.
