Six passengers riding a hot air balloon in Clinton, Massachusetts on Saturday are being treated for minor injuries after their balloon ran into power lines.

In a video filmed by locals Ruchika Misra and Christopher Almada on the ground, you can see the low-flying balloon’s descent into a residential area before it got snagged on power lines and exploded.

According to the Daily Mail:

The Federal Aviation Administration said in a statement that ‘a Colt Balloon was attempting to land in a residential area near Clinton, MA when it struck a power line and caught on fire today at 7:40 p.m.’
