DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - The Broward Sheriff's Office just recently reported that the evening after the Fourth of July, when no one was really expecting fireworks, an incident occurred inside a Wendy's restaurant in Deerfield Beach.
Right before 10 p.m., surveillance video showed an employee sitting at a table near the front door. A door opens behind her and one of a handful of suspects throws a firework inside.
The suspects then reportedly fled.
The video shows the firework spark and start to fly, as it begins to emit a bit of smoke before a larger flare scares the worker away.
The room is clearly filled with smoke while restaurant workers try to figure out what even happened.
Police say the firework created a roughly 7-inch hole in the base of the wall.
Police believe that eight to 10 young males are responsible for the blast.
