Saturday morning, Wyoming police discovered an illegal firework manufacturing operation after responding to a call of a man with 1st-degree burns.

Wyoming Police say a 30-year-old man suffered severe burns after a minor flashover explosion in the garage at 7002 Lake Blvd.

After the man was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, police discovered materials used to make fireworks. After acquiring a search warrant, authorities found a small manufacturing operation, producing illegal 2-3 inch mortar-style aerial fireworks.

Two other adult males in their thirties are currently in custody in relation to the operation.

The case is under investigation.
