The fireworks show at Hersheypark was cut short when a brush fire broke out last Tuesday night.

The Fourth of July fireworks show at Hersheypark was cut short when the fireworks caused an actual fire late Tuesday night.

Luckily, no one was hurt, according to local media reports. But the fire, which was reported around 10:30 p.m. and was contained by 11 p.m., did stop the show only 15 minutes after it had started.

This, of course, was a grave disappointment to those in attendance, including young YouTube user "Latin pig man Sam" who recorded the family drama that developed following the brush fire.

Pig man Sam elaborated on the show’s level of suck in a follow-up video, explaining his family had waited two hours, only for it to be canceled because of the fire.

Hersheypark apologized for the cancellation, and the town thanked its fire department for containing the fire so quickly.
