Authorities say five people, including two children, were hurt in a suburban Detroit neighborhood when fireworks set off in a street went awry.
The Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press, WWJ-AM and others report a mortar tipped over Thursday night and shot into a Sterling Heights garage. Officials say the people in the area were injured and the 8-year-old girls were taken to a nearby hospital.
The Free Press reports one girl suffered serious injuries and the other minor injuries.
The man who set up the fireworks received a violation.
Southern Michigan authorities say a 30-year-man also was injured Thursday in the Calhoun County community of Springfield as he was trying to light fireworks. WOOD-TV reports he was taken to a Kalamazoo hospital with burns and a broken wrist.
