PALMYRA, Pa. - Authorities say a firework exploded into a crowd gathered for a town Fourth of July celebration in central Pennsylvania, injuring 11 people.

Palmyra Borough police say a charge misfired, and material exploded into the nearby crowd at Palmyra Middle School and across a football field.

Authorities say the victims suffered burns, contusions and abrasions. Among them are four people ages 11 to 17 and one employee of the company that was staging the fireworks show.

One adult and one minor remain hospitalized Monday with non-life-threatening injuries.
