Baseball stadium fireworks mishap injures Ohio man

CINCINNATI — A fireworks mishap during a Cincinnati Reds baseball game injured a technician for the fireworks company.

Authorities said the man was hospitalized with burns Sunday. His name and condition weren’t released.

Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks shoots off fireworks after Reds’ home runs and when the home team wins. The fireworks went off unexpectedly during the Reds’ 7-6 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday.

A Rozzi’s official told The Cincinnati Enquirer that the company will investigate along with the Ohio Fire Marshal’s office. He said there was no risk to the public during the misfire.
