A fireworks outlet in Tennessee self-destructed shortly after the biggest day of the year for colorful explosions in the sky, exploding and burning to the ground in one last sad display before the long wait until New Year's Eve.

The explosion, which occurred the evening of July 6th, completely destroyed the Campbell County Fireworks Superstore building and caused miles-long backups on Tennessee's Interstate 75. Witnesses reported seeing fireworks shooting out of the store and exploding during its demise.

There were no reported injuries, but several employees and customers were inside when the fire started, according to ABC. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
