Two boys injured in indoor firework blast

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Two boys were hurt when a firework exploded inside their Springfield home Sunday night.

Flames in the kitchen of a home at 33 Greenleaf Street in Forest Park set fire to a dish towel. When someone in the home tried the toss the towel out the window, a firework that was being used to prop-open that window exploded.

Springfield Fire Spokesman Dennis Leger told 22News one boy cut his foot, and another burned his hand during the incident.

Neither of the boys had to be taken to the hospital, Leger said.
