MANCHESTER, NH (CBS) – A Manchester, New Hampshire nightclub owner has been cited after police say they caught his employees setting off fireworks on the roof, while hundreds of people were inside the building.

Police say just after midnight on Sunday, an officer found several employees at Drynk setting off fireworks in an alley and on the roof of the club.

The officer reported that the container full of fireworks tipped over and sent “small burning projectiles” onto the wooden roof.

The fireworks left visible burn marks in several areas of the roof.

The club was filled with over 400 patrons at the time of this incident.

The club owner, 38-year-old Thomas Svoleantopoulos was summoned to court violating a city ordinance that prohibits discharging of fireworks.
