Friday's early morning fireworks show was a result of a faulty igniter, according to Assistant Fire Chief and Guam Fire Department Fire Marshal Joey Manibusan.

Parade-goers who camped along the parade route on Thursday evening were awoken around 5:30 Friday morning to the sounds of loud explosions.

Despite earlier reports the fireworks would be canceled, officials assure residents the display will start at 9pm.
