In a video posted to WorldStarHipHop’s Facebook page last Friday, a Walmart customer recorded a giant burning fireworks display in an aisle. Apparently, a small group of people decided to light part of the fireworks display aflame, causing a crackling, cacophonous inferno.
According to KNXV-TV, the Walmart had to be evacuated as smoke filled the store. The sprinkler system eventually extinguished the fire and no-one was reported as seriously injured, though several customers were treated on the scene for inhaling smoke.
The fire was luckily extinguished before it spread to a nearby row of lighter fluid and propane canisters.
Video of the incident has gone viral, with nearly 4 million views as of today WorldStarHipHop’s version of the video, in addition to hundreds of thousands of views on several reposts.
Meanwhile, Phoenix police are looking for at least two men and a woman suspected with starting the blaze. Surveillance video showed a group of three people leaving the aisle shortly before the fire started. The suspects could face class two felony charges, which can carry up to 20 years in jail.
