(Scroll down for video) A faulty fuse box gave sleepy resident of one Israeli city a firecracker like show, according to video uploaded to the Internet by Channel 2 News.

Residents of Kiryat Bialik woke up hearing popping sounds in an industrial area of the city. When they went outside, they saw a fuse box exploding and shooting out large plumes of smoke.

Firefighters who arrived at the scene, could not use water to extinguish the fire because of the live electricity, so residents were able to watch the fireworks for some time.

Eventually, members of the local power company cut off the electricity to the area. A preliminary examination of the circumstances indicate that the fuse box caught fire due to an overload causing a short circuit.

No injuries were reported.
