Dallas (TX) firefighters were reportedly attacked with fireworks when they responded early Sunday morning to a dumpster fire.
NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported that the fire began when a large group of people in a parking lot apparently began shooting off fireworks at a dumpster.
When eight Dallas firefighters arrived in two units to put out the flames, people started shooting fireworks at them, the report said. None of the firefighters were hurt and their two units were only slightly damaged.
The group ran off before police arrived, according to the report.
The attack was but one of many fireworks-related incidents picked up by the news during the Fourth of July period this year, and follows on the heels of an incident in which a Milwaukee firefighter was grazed by a bullet during an EMS call.
