Fourth of July got started a little early for one South Carolina town.
Containers outside a fireworks store in Fort Mill, South Carolina, caught fire early Thursday morning, according to the York County Sheriff's Office.
The result was a spectacular, if premature, fireworks show.
Authorities tweeted a taste of the unintentional pageantry, showing some rockets shooting into the air while another exploded on the ground.
The fire was extinguished, and photos showed the charred aftermath.
