(Meredith/CNN) -- Watch what happens when some driveway fireworks go horribly wrong.

Police say a group of people in New York were lighting off illegal fireworks in the driveway of one man's home.

However, things took a destructive turn when a lit shell flew into the home of one of the men setting off the fireworks, ABC7 reported

Shortly thereafter, a fire slowly starts to grow inside the house. But by the time the group realized the home is ablaze, it's too late to stop the inferno.

Police officers said the fire destroyed part of the home and damaged another house. The man who set off the fireworks is now facing arson charges.
