Man fires off illegal fireworks and damages his vehicle near Tomahawk

TOMAHAWK, WI (WTAQ) - A northern Wisconsin man was let off with a warning for lighting illegal fireworks -- and it's just as well, since he had vehicle damage as a result.

Lincoln County authorities responded to a pickup truck fire late Saturday night at a business near Tomahawk.

A neighbor had already put out the fire with an extinguisher before firefighters could get to work.

Investigators said the man admitted firing bottle rockets -- and one of them landed in the bed of his 13-year-old pickup truck. The bedliner caught fire -- and it caused damage to the box, tailgate paint, and tail lights.

No one was injured.
