ROCHESTER, Ind. (AP) - Flames roared through a northern Indiana fireworks store, shooting off numerous rockets that exploded high in the air.
The fire broke out Wednesday night at Windy City Fireworks in Rochester. WSBT-TV and WNDU-TV report that firefighter arrived to find the building fully engulfed in flames and that several fire departments were called to the scene to help extinguish the blaze.
No injuries were reported and the fire's cause wasn't immediately known.
The destroyed store is along Indiana 14 and authorities closed that highway for a time in the city about 40 miles south of South Bend. Police say traffic backups happened on nearby U.S. 31 as many drivers stopped to watch the fire.
