ROY, Utah, Aug. 4, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Four people were treated for minor burns after a fireworks display during Roy Days Saturday night.

Roy City Fire Department Chief Jeff Comeau told Gephardt Daily that soon after the fireworks display began at the Roy West Park, at 2900 W. 4650 South, at approximately 10 p.m., a northwesterly wind started blowing.

The winds blew some of the fireworks outside the safe zone and into the crowd, Comeau said, at which point the decision was made to cut the display short.

Four people were treated on scene for minor burns, Comeau said.

No one else was injured in the accident.
