CARTWRIGHT, OK -- Some people were busy cleaning up what was left behind by fireworks.

Family members who run Jason's Fireworks stand say hundreds of people showed up to shoot off fireworks on Wednesday night. On Thursday, they were up early working in the heat to pick up all the leftover shells that littered the ground.

They say it takes hours to get to everything, but that it is a family affair. "We clean up the day after, start in the morning and clean up. It takes a while, but we got all the kids," says Travis Washer.

Workers at the fireworks stand say an exploding firework hurt one woman's foot on Wednesday night, but that the ambulance arrived quickly and she is expected to be alright.
