A volley of fireworks jolted the town's planning board during its meeting last night.
At about 10:20 p.m., during discussions of a proposed development near the Charles River, board members were surprised by the sound of explosions and bright flashes of light directly behind town hall.
Board member John Schroeder got out of his seat to look out the window and said he saw one person behind the building.
Chairman Andy Rodenhiser asked the board to remain focused as it concluded discussions with the developer's engineers and nearby residents through the unexpected interruption.
