Fireworks or Gunshots? Ferndale Neighbors React to Explosions

Around 9:30pm Monday night, July 27th, reports of three explosive “booms” came from all around Ferndale. Some were guessing it was gunshots while other assumed fireworks. Given the comments made on social media, parents, kids and pets were rattled regardless of the cause.

Eyewitness Jennifer Dunn posted to Facebook,

It was fireworks. Lit off by jerks. It was right on vista/4th. Right outside where I live. They’re lucky the cops got to them before I did.

According to Lt. Bill Hatchett of the Ferndale Police,

Officers were able to determine it was fireworks, but were unable to locate a suspect. Did not appear there were further incidents beyond the several booms around 9:30.
