This neighborhood is just FULL of pyromaniacs. Every New Year's and every 4th there's a tremendous amount of noise that night, and the occasional random explosion almost each day in the weeks leading up to both, and a good amount some days afterward. For years now, the local police have circled the neighborhood on those days so that their presence keeps everyone from blowing up something or setting somebody's roof on fire. They've pretty much given up on trying to keep them from buying and setting off rockets.
Gad, I can almost smell the sulfur already.
