This guy was setting off huge mortar rounds all night, we all thought he would surely lose a limb using this method of lighting fuses

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every year, Bayville residents light huge bonfires to celebrate independence day. The beach is crescent-shaped and as the sun sinks and the fires burn, the crescent glows. Sailboats come from miles away to see this spectacle. Last year, some people stacked their wood over 30 feet high and the cinders blew onto some houses, almost setting them on fire as well. The town decided to put a ban on the bonfires, imposing $5,000 fines to anyone who burned one down. The threat didn’t quite stick…
