TRAFALGAR, Ind. (WTHR) - A woman is finally back home Wednesday after fireworks landed and exploded in her house last week.

It happened Friday night in the Lamb Lake Subdivision in Trafalgar. That's where they have a neighborhood fireworks show every year.

The fire chief said two mortars were shot off. One went off in the air, but the other fell on top of the house and exploded in the attic and garage.

The homeowner showed us some of the damage inside. Fortunately, firefighters were already on the scene and were able to get the homeowner out of the residence.
