The town of Marana's annual fireworks display sparked a brushfire that burned brightly as the show continued, fire officials said.

The 1 1/2-acre fire was out in less than a half hour.

It broke out in a wash near Crossroads Park at Silverbell and Cortaro Farms, adjacent to the fireworks display at Arizona Pavilions.
