Mystery fireworks over Boston Harbor

Cheyenne was among the many people who watched the fireworks over Boston Harbor tonight - and who wondered what the reason was.

Spencer Buell reports he called Boston and State Police and the city (don't worry - he's a reporter; knows not to call 911) and that nobody had an answer.

UPDATE: BFD spokesman Steve MacDonald reports the privately financed show was put on by Atlas Pyro of Jaffrey, NH for an events-production company called Fresh Wata in Las Vegas, NV.
