RENO COUNTY -

The phones wouldn't stop ringing at the Hutchinson Police Department Tuesday morning.

Callers were reporting a loud boom, some say it shook their house. Police began looking for the source and soon they found it at Rainbow Fireworks Northeast of Hutchinson.

The Fireworks Company's owner says they were getting rid of damaged professional grade shells, to do that they detonate them in a pit.

The owner says multiple shells ignited at once and that caused the extra loud boom.

No one was hurt.
