HALES CORNERS, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)   A fireworks show in suburban Milwaukee was cut short, after one of the people setting off the big boomers suffered a broken leg. The show in Hales Corners started just before 9:30 last night as scheduled, but it stopped after just four rounds.

Early reports said one of the fireworks exploded on the ground. Police called it a “minor malfunction.” The show never resumed after that.

Other details were not immediately available, including the condition of the injured worker.
