A Russian Fireworks Factory Caught On Fire And Put On The Greatest Show In All Of Mother Russia

(Source)- An unexpected rapid-fire cavalcade of fireworks erupted over a Russian city on Sunday. Beneath the display, firefighters worked to deal with its cause: a fire at a factory. Officials with Russia's Ministry of Emergency Situations said the fire broke out early Sunday morning at a fireworks factory in Rostov-on-Don, a port city in Russia's southwest near the Ukrainian border.

According to news verification service Storyful, more than 400 firefighters were deployed in the battle against the fire, which burned through more than 4,000 square metres of property. There were no initial reports of injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Ahhhhh, nothing beats a good old fashioned fireworks factory fire, unless you are the insurance guy that has to figure out how to not pay out the fire insurance claim to the owner of the fire factory. But everyone else getting a free show that is better than any grand finale ever shot into the sky that usually involve no injuries since they usually seem to happen in the middle of the night is one of the treats the internet churns out every so often and I always appreciate them. 

I know that some people on the internet have turned against fireworks because there is nothing the internet loves more than hating things everyone used to like. But if loving watching a bunch of loud, fiery explosions in the air is wrong, I don't want to be right. The only thing that could have made all this better was if one of the Ruskies filming this could have fired up some Trans-Siberian Orchestra Christmas music on their phone to make that the most beautiful celebration of Baby Jesus entering the Earth since those three supposedly super smart guys wandered the desert to bring gold, frankincense and myrrh to a newborn, which was definitely not weird at all.
