OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — A bomb squad searched through damaged fireworks that exploded on a Maryland beach ahead of a scheduled Fourth of July display and how they should be removed.

WTOP reports the Ocean City Fire Department says multiple agencies, including the town’s bomb squad and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will evaluate fireworks damaged during Sunday’s accident to determine how to remove and destroy them.
