FARGO, N.D. (AP) — One person was burned and a car was destroyed in an explosion and fire caused by fireworks in Fargo.

KFGO radio reports that the car's driver was able to pull onto the shoulder of Interstate 29 and get everyone out before the fire burned out of control Monday night.

Fire Capt. Jesse Schmidt says two adults and three children who had just purchased fireworks were in the car. He says children in the back seat were playing with cap guns, and sparks touched off the fireworks.

Schmidt says one of the occupants was burned and taken to a hospital.
