GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- Authorities say a Minnesota man has been arrested for allegedly setting off a large firework in a North Dakota bar while it was full of people.

The Grand Forks Police Department says the incident occurred early Sunday morning. Police say the 20-year-old Crookston man has been preliminarily charged with offenses including endangering by fire or explosion and criminal mischief.
