A Rhode Island man faces charges after the cigarette he was smoking inside a car apparently ignited fireworks.

Police arrested the 28-year-old Sunday after an officer found a sedan smoking in the middle of the street. Firefighters were called to extinguish the blaze. No one was injured.

The man told police he was smoking a cigarette in the car when fireworks near his feet ignited. Witnesses told police they saw a passenger tossing fireworks out shortly before police arrived.

The man is charged with the use or possession of fireworks under $500.
