Five youths were charged with disorderly conduct, but it wasn't clear if anyone was injured.

The fire department issued a statement saying the carnival that was due to run through Saturday would instead be immediately shuttered. They also said no further carnivals would be held because the event has "turned into a landing spot for out-of-town troublemakers."
