Firework Accident Wrestlemania

We now have more information on yesterday’s fireworks malfucntion at WrestleMania 24:

Apparently almost 4 dozen people were burned after some fireworks malfunctioned at wrestleMania XXIV. Here’s some more details on the event.

Fire officials in Orlando, Florida say there was some fireworks that malfunctioned at a Wrestlemania event causing minor burns to about forty people. They say at least 3 people were needing to go to a hospital for treatment, but none of the injuries were serious. This occured last night at the Florida Citrus Bowl. A fire department spokesman said one of the cables holding the fireworks collapsed, sending hot embers from the fireworks into the crowd. He said there were burn injuries “up and down the stadium.”

TMZ.com actually managed to secure footage of the fireworks malfunction from WrestleMania. BUt it seems Luck was on the crowd’s side that the injuries were minor – this could have been a catastrophy for WWE. Watch the video here – scary stuff.

Jeff Hardy’s House Burnt To The Ground

Jeff Hardy and His House Fire
We first got reports that WWE Star Matt Hardy is the person who discovered his brother Jeff’s house was on fire. After realizing Jeff was not home at the time, all he could do was call the local authorities.
Next, TMZ.com has picked up the story and provided new details:

Captain Bruner from the Cameron Fire Department said the Moore County Fire Department has ruled the cause of the fire as “undetermined.”

Bruner said about 11:30 PM the blaze was “paged out as a wildfire” — this was first thought a wildfire because citizens making the emergency call could only see the fire through trees. 3 minutes later another call was made, this time specifically naming the Hardy house as the location of the fire.

When local firemen arrived on scene, Hardy’s home was “fully engulfed.” Because the home was “burnt so bad,” the investigating Moore County Fire officials ruled the blaze “undetermined”.

Foul play is not being investigated mainly because Jeff Hardy told Captain Bruner that he does not have insurance on the house.
