PITTSFIELD, Mass. — An electrical malfunction shortened the Fourth of July firework display at Wahconah Park.

The company hired for the fireworks display is guaranteeing a "spectacular show" Friday to make up for an electrical problem on the Fourth of July that led to a shortened show.

"The report I got was that there was an electrical problem. We are planning on — at the next fireworks show — doing double," Atlas PyroVision Productions Vice President Matthew Shea said on Tuesday. "You never know when things will break and we want to make it up to everybody."

Not all of the fireworks slated for the show were launched, he said.

The shortened display led to disappointment in thousands inside and outside of the park. The show lasted less than five minutes and, with people still waiting, the team announced the display had ended.

According to Lisa Blackmer, an employee with the Colonials, nobody was injured in the malfunction.
