If you were in the St. Albans or Nitro area today and heard what sounded like an explosion it was just some fireworks.

Crews were testing their pyrotechnics for tonight's Riverfest Display when a couple of fireworks went off unexpectedly.

St. Albans Mayor Dick Callaway and Dispatchers say no one was injured.

The Mayor also says they keep a fire truck on hand just in case something would happen.

Riverfest fireworks are expected to start around 9pm.
