Last Monday just after the Fourth of July, the employees at a Taco Bell in Nashville thought it would be a good idea to set off some fireworks INSIDE the restaurant. 

It was caught on the surveillance cameras. They locked the place up to keep customers out and ran around with fireworks in their hands and ignited some kind of firework in a trash can in the men's room. (Please release the surveillance footage!)

Next, they did the same thing in a trash can in the main dining room, and filmed it on their phones! They went outside to get a better view but then realized that they'd accidentally locked themselves out.

While they watched the explosions, one of the fireworks ignited a full-on fire in the restaurant. So they called 911, and firefighters came to put out the blaze. It caused more than $30,000 in damage.

25-year-old Courtney Mayes was the shift leader - she's been arrested and charged with felony aggravated arson. Police expect to make more arrests in the coming days.
