Massachusetts city’s fireworks present canceled after barge hearth in center of night time: ‘Sad situation’


A coastal city’s annual fireworks present for the Fourth of July has been canceled after a barge hearth in the course of the night time.

The Marblehead Hearth Division and the Marblehead Harbormaster responded to the fireworks barge on hearth on the mouth of the harbor early Thursday morning.

On account of the barge hearth, the fireworks present for Thursday night time was canceled.

“We are very sorry to have to announce that the Marblehead Fireworks and Harbor Illumination 2024 are not going to be happening this year,” the Marblehead Fireworks Committee stated in a press release.

“There was a fire on the barge in the middle of the night, and the cause of the fire has not been determined yet,” the committee added.

No person was on the barge at the moment of the hearth, and no accidents had been reported.

“Again, as a result of this incident, the Fireworks Committee has determined that we are unable to have the fireworks and harbor illumination this year,” the committee wrote. “If you have received any flares from the fire department for the illumination, we ask that you please return them to the fire department at your earliest convenience, so that we can reuse them for next year.”

All different occasions surrounding the July 4 celebration in Marblehead had been continuing as deliberate.

The committee added, “Notwithstanding this sad situation, we still wish you all a Happy Fourth of July!”
