Many people have been injured after a firework accidentally set off thousands of other fireworks in a Spanish church. Hot fireworks landed on people who met for a town festival. 28 people were injured.

The fireworks were covered by a protective blanket. They were in a pack which was designed to shoot many rockets about three hundred metres into the air.

But one firework landed on the pack and set off the others minutes before midnight which was the original time for the fireworks.


Interesting words: set off (start), covered (hidden under).
