A 37-year-old Concord man must now live a comparatively digit-free life after blowing off several of his fingers while trying to ignite a firework on Monday. The incident happened just before 8pm over on the 2500 block of East Olivera Road.

"Although it wasn’t confirmed by the Concord Police Department," reports Claycord, "we heard he blew off at least three of his fingers, including his thumb."
