Malta Fireworks Factory Explosion Photograph

Malta Fireworks Fstival 2014 - Lilli Factory Fan Rack

This is an incredible and devastating photograph.

This blast took place at the St Helena fireworks factory in Ghargur, Birkirara 27th June 2007. Situated in an unused quarry, nothing remained of the factory after a series of after explosions completely destroyed all traces of it. Men lost their lives and the emergency services were unable to do their job amid fears of further explosions.

This breath-taking image reminds us of the dangers involved in the manufacture of fireworks and in the creation of such abundant beauty, there can be a terrible loss.

Always be safe with fireworks.
