GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
A fireworks display at Bob Jones University on Tuesday night might explain the loud booms that people heard in the Greenville area.
Several people called the FOX Carolina newsroom and reported hearing thunder-like sounds on the east side of Greenville just after 9 p.m. The sounds were heard in Taylors, Greer and downtown Greenville.
According to a spokesman for the university, the fireworks display started about 9:15 p.m. and lasted about 20 minutes.
According to a Facebook page set up for an event at the school called "Gold Rush Daze," which began in 1976 and is held every four years, the event ended with a fireworks display.
