FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Crews went up 26 floors plus an extra set of staircases to set up fireworks show at One Summit Square Friday.

Eric Van Buskirk with Melrose Pyrotechnics has been working with the company for 20 years, he and his crew started bringing up the fireworks Thursday, and continued the work at 9:30 a.m. Friday.

Each box that was carried up the stairs to the roof top weighed anywhere from 50 to 80 lbs.

Van Buskirk said there are about 10,000 different fireworks that will go off in about 25 minutes.

The fireworks are scheduled to start at 10:15 Friday night. However, if the TinCaps game runs late, fireworks begin immediately after that.
