FALLSTON, Md. (AP) — A 15-year-old girl suffered second-degree burns in Fallston in an explosion involving illegal fireworks.

The  teen and her family were watching fireworks on the 1800 block of Brickhouse Lane when a few of them went astray and exploded in front of her.

The teen was taken to the Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatric Burn Unit with serious burns on roughly nine percent of her legs and fingers.

The man who discharged the fireworks, which were purchased in Pennsylvania, was issued $500 worth of citations.
