Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - You may have heard some thunderous booms Tuesday night in Fargo city limits. Police say a handful of people mistakenly thought they were gunshots… Instead: Fireworks.

Authorities responded to 11 complaints of fireworks.

While it's illegal to shoot them off in city limits, this is the first year North Dakotans have been able to purchase them for New Year’s Eve.

As for partiers out and about Tuesday night, officers had nine calls for loud parties and made three DUI arrests, which they say is less than the average Saturday night.
