Bonfire Explodes At Florida High School Homecoming
Who doesn’t love a good bonfire to go along with your high school homecoming?
It’s all fun and games until it explodes like this one did.
On Wednesday at Mosley High School’s annual homecoming bonfire (which is in Lynn Haven, Florida), things go awry.
A deputy with the local Sheriff’s Office lit the fire. But then there’s an ENORMOUS boom and explosion to go along with it.
Thank goodness no one was hurt!
No one knows what causes the explosion but the school district officials put out the following statement: “Even though last night’s situation was definitely a worst-case scenario for us, our standard safety protocols and the availability of first responders on the scene ensured that no one was hurt and that the fire was quickly contained. Safety is always our number one priority however, so we have made the decision to prohibit any bonfires, or similar events, on any of our campuses going forward. The homecoming bonfire has been a wonderful tradition for generations of students and while we’re saddened to see that tradition end, we will always make decisions that err on the side of caution when it comes to safety.”
