Vendor's supply destroyed in fire

Shell Knob's annual Fire and Thunder fireworks show has been canceled, as the vendor the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce uses has its supply destroyed in a fire on Tuesday.

"Due to the explosion and fire last night at our pyrotech’s warehouse, our fireworks display has been canceled," said Twilia Harrison, Chamber director. "There is no make up date at this time. One of their employees was severely burned in that explosion, so keep her in your prayers."

One person was airlifted from the A.M. Pyrotechnics plant in Pleasant Hope with serious injuries. Witnesses say the explosions shook their homes.
