According to reports in the local media, the driver may have lost control of his vehicle before hitting another car and then slamming into the Phantom Fireworks shop in Florida's West Melbourne area, around 110 kms from Orlando. Eyewitness accounts say that within minutes of the incident, the stores fireworks in the 5,573-square-foot shop began going off. Some of the fireworks lit up from the blaze and reached surrounding distances of up to 100 yards.

Both the SUV and the store have been entirely destroyed in the incident, and while there is no word yet on the accused driver's condition, local police officials say that they are investigating the entire incident to establish a chain of events that eventually led to the blaze.
