A fireworks explosion in Bismarck Saturday morning has left one person injured.
Bismarck Rural Fire Chief Dustin Theurer says the department was dispatched around 11:20 a.m. to Fuller Avenue for an explosion that caused multiple grass fires.
Theurer said one person was injured and transferred to a local hospital, but that person’s status is unknown as of Saturday afternoon.
Theurer says in addition to Bismarck Rural Fire Department, Bismarck Bomb Squad, ATF, North Dakota Fire Marshals, Bismarck Fire Department and Mandan Rural Fire Department responded to the scene.
He says all fires are extinguished as of this afternoon, and Yeagan road has been reopened, but Fuller Avenue remains closed.
The Bismarck Bomb and Bismarck Rural Fire Department will be detonating the remainder of the fireworks in a safe manner Saturday night. Explosions may be heard near Fuller Avenue and the surrounding areas in southeast Bismarck.
