Dennis Heckman woke up to an unpleasant surprise this morning, a heavy storm took down his 75-year-old tree.

"It was pretty quick, it was all at once, blowing and the rain was coming down pretty hard, coming sideways the wind was," he said.

But it wasn't in just residential areas. Black Dragon Fireworks had their tent set up when the storm rolled in.

"A giant wall of wind and a monster monsoon of rain and it just ripped the whole side down and ripped that other tent down," Aaron Williams said.

Which means Aaron Williams is not only losing business, but tens of thousands of dollars in fireworks.

"Today's shot, tomorrow's probably shot, all these fireworks will have to be destroyed," Williams said.

Though losing money in sales and fireworks is devastating, Williams says the damage could have been heartbreaking.

"I was just glad my kid wasn't inside the tent because he was supposed to be in there," he said.

Though Black Dragon Fireworks is out of commission right now, they'll be back in business by Saturday, just in time for the Fourth.
