Premature explosion ....

"The Fourth of July fireworks display above San Diego Bay was over in a flash after a malfunction that the show's producer blamed on a computer glitch caused the planned 20-minute spectacle to burn up all at once. 
The mishap occurred minutes before the scheduled opening of the Big Bay Boom show, the Coast Guard said. Guard spokesman Rich Dann told U-T San Diego he's never seen so many fireworks go off at one time. 
Online video shows multiple light bulb-shaped explosions flaring up from barges in the bay, lighting the night sky over downtown San Diego.
Rapid snaps and pops punctuate the blazes, which begin to fizzle and sputter in a matter of seconds."
