‘Now I see why they’re illegal’

Woods said that night will go down as one of the worst days of his life.

“This was an accident that I will pay dearly for,” Woods said. “I lit off five fireworks and I think the fourth one was a bad deal. I burnt people’s houses down and I don’t know what else to say except I’m sorry.”

Woods said during a Friday interview with a Journal reporter that he purchased $255 worth of illegal aerial fireworks from the Fort Hall Indian Reservation before the Fourth of July festivities.

“I didn’t light them off for the Fourth of July and I was going to save them for New Year's when nothing could burn, but I decided I would light a few of them off last night,” Woods said. “It didn’t turn out very good, and now I see why they’re illegal. I wish I would have never done it.” Full story. Idaho Statesman
