ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

A St. Helena Island resident got quite a shock when she opened her mailbox on Tuesday. 

Instead of getting mail she got fireworks. 

According to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office, the woman, who lives on Marsh Drive, said the fireworks had already been lit by the time she opened the mailbox and they burned her mail.

"I would be angry. I would be feeling everything to make sure it was okay because your hands go into the mailbox, and then I would be very angry," said Ginger Herald, neighbor. 

The woman is okay and her mailbox was not damaged.
