McNabb Man Injured In Fireworks Mishap

Posted by wlpo on February 7, 2013

Fireworks in February?  A man from McNabb is in Peoria after a fireworks explosion.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office got a call just before 7 last night that a firework exploded outside Magnolia.  Brandon Phillips and another man were apparently trying to remove a tree stump using a firework when it exploded.

Phillips was rushed to the Lacon Airport where he was picked up by Life Flight and flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  He’s in fair condition.

The other man involved wasn’t injured.
