... recalled firing an “orange shotgun round” at a soda box, expecting the round to “shoot out flame or act like a flare gun.” Shiflet provided Woolf with the “exact same type of shotgun shell that he fired” on May 12, triggering the massive blaze.
A warning on the Fiocchi 12 gauge round’s packaging made its danger clear: “Shoots 100 feet of fire, setting everything in its path ablaze. Warning: Extreme FIRE HAZARD.”

They will be dismantling it and taking it away. Apparently it is now a haz-mat issue because of the cinnabar being heated by the fire (I don't understand the chemistry behind it but they sounded pretty certain). Say goodbye
