Police officials in Somersworth say that the illegal fireworks which were blown up by amateur pyrotechnicians on July 4 at the Noble Pines Baseball Field caused over $500 worth of damage.

Capt. Russell Timmons of the Somersworth Police Department explained on Thursday that the ground-based fireworks caused damage to the tarp that covers the pitcher's mound and protects the pile of dirt underneath it.

"Replacement costs are roughly $500 to $600," Timmons said. "Once the integrity of the tarp is breached, it's no good."

On Tuesday, police officials posted about the incident on Facebook, asking people to help them identify the subjects.

People who may have information about the incident are asked to contact Ofc. Seawards at 603-692-3131 or by email at tseawards@somersworth.com.

The case number for this offense is 21-1373​-OF.

The New Hampshire State Police Bomb Squad demonstrated the dangerousness of fireworks prior to the Fourth of July weekend.

ConcordTV produced a video at the media event. The demonstration begins at about 10:05.
