"$170K worth of fireworks stolen in Bexar County "

Be wary of that homemade fireworks stand on the side of the road. Those boom-booms just might be a little hot.
"It's extremely frustrating, you're trying to survive in this heat, setting everything up, and to have a setback like this. It is extremely frustrating," said E.J. Cheney with Boom! Fireworks.
