“They were all having fun with the kids. It was only like a half hour from when they stopped to when the fire broke out. It was less than a half hour,” witness Frances Gribbin said.

Gribbin says he is not sure if the fireworks used were legal or illegal.

It is not clear at this time what exactly caused the fire.
