Fireworks did this kind of damage? Enough to take down a bridge?

That's one firework show that I would love to attend!

Conspiracy Troll:

"China was secretly moving high amounts of explosives in preparation for their coming war in and around the waters off their coast. This was sabotaged by a Japanese sleeper cell that caught wind of the moving materials."

Why do you think they don’t let trucks carrying any explosives transverse major bridges , or into major cities, in the US?

Because we have already learned the lesion that S@#$ can happen. And you want to limit the damage that it will cause if it does happen. So best keep them off, and away from anything valuable that they can destroy if they do go off.

It was bound to happen sometime. China has been making fireworks for hundreds of years. I'm surprised this isn't a more common occurrence.

Fireworks are explosives that are colored by placing different types of metals in with gun powder. So, yes, they can cause a lot of damage if one is not careful! Pyrotechnics know how to make it so that they don't do any damage, and that's why it's important to only let professionals handle fireworks.
