I've always been a big advocate of leaving fireworks to the professionals.  They put on amazing displays compared to what you can do in your backyard and your odds of keeping all 10 fingers increases exponentially.  But sometimes, even the pros make mistakes.  That's what happened last night at San Diego's Big Bay Boom.

Technical difficulties are being blamed for igniting the entire 15 minute fireworks show in just 30 seconds.

Watch the residents of San Diego experience a shock-and-awe style fireworks show.
