PARKER, Ariz. - A fire started under a Fourth of July fireworks display held by an Arizona casino Monday night.

Video recorded Monday night shows the moment the display went awry. As the show comes to an end, huge flames can be seen erupting from the area where the fireworks were being launched.

Workers at BlueWater Resort & Casino, where the event was being held, said they were just as surprised by the incident as the visitors.

"Fireworks at BlueWater were great, then the desert started burning," wrote Gene Smith, an employee of the casino.

The casino said on Facebook that the fire is under control and no one was hurt.
