Explosion in Orem Parade Sends Several Kids to Hospital
(KUTV) Three kids were sent to the hospital after an explosion occurred during a parade in Orem Saturday.

Witnesses who saw the explosion told 2News that two of the three children appeared to be engulfed in flames.

These children were part of a Civil War reenactment group.

During the reenactment, a cannon was fired and one of the sparks landed in a pouch that contained additional charges for the cannon. The pouch blew up, injuring all three children involved in the reenactment, the press release said.

All three children were in stable condition as they were taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
