Digital Glitch Causes 4th of July Fireworks to Explode Early

It’s okay San Diego, it happens to everyone at some point (um, so we hear).  In what authorities are calling a case of “premature ignition,” the 4th of July fireworks celebration that was originally planned to last 20 minutes in duration instead went for only 15 seconds.  A computer glitch is believed to be the cause and authorities are currently investigating.
