SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Officials confirm that fireworks are to blame for a late night fire.
A homeowner on Judy Avenue, in southeast Sioux Falls, woke up around 11:30 to find his garage on fire. Fortunately, everyone got out okay.
The flames got so hot, a vehicle inside the garage was partially melted.
Investigators say someone had picked up the remnants of fireworks, threw them in a bucket and then left the trash inside the garage. It smoldered and eventually started the fire.
