Fireworks thrown inside Wendy's, scares employees

- The Broward Sheriff's Office just recently reported that the evening after the Fourth of July, when no one was really expecting fireworks, an incident occurred inside a Wendy's restaurant in Deerfield Beach.

Right before 10 p.m., surveillance video showed an employee sitting at a table near the front door. A door opens behind her and one of a handful of suspects throws a firework inside.

The suspects then reportedly fled.

The video shows the firework spark and start to fly, as it begins to emit a bit of smoke before a larger flare scares the worker away. 

The room is clearly filled with smoke while restaurant workers try to figure out what even happened.

Police say the firework created a roughly 7-inch hole in the base of the wall. 

Police believe that eight to 10 young males are responsible for the blast.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det. Devoune Williams at 954-321-4235. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or online at
