The video has been shared on Facebook and Twitter, with residents responding to them.
Laila Roberts, who posted the video on Facebook, said: ‘It can be so scary and so scary!
‘I hope no one is harmed, because they absolutely could.
‘He who does this will be ashamed of himself!’
Will Watson said: ‘It lets you call as it is here – these guys are stupid.
‘How could they do that, especially on a main street!’
More than 60 fireworks-related problems have been reported in Sheffield over the past few days.
Earlier this week, a large number of young people were reportedly throwing fireworks at each other in Devonshire Green.
Chief Superintendent Sarah Pullman said: ‘We are already seeing an increase in anti-social behavior involving children and fireworks.
‘Fireworks are dangerous, they pose a risk to the safety of people and their property as well as cause trouble to many of the residents in the vicinity.
‘We know that Halloween and Bonfire Night will be different this year, but the antisocial use of fireworks is incredibly dangerous and frightening for victims and witnesses.
‘We are embracing zero-tolerance in this and I urge parents to support us in relaying this message.’
