The loose firework in the town of Elche set off the thousands of others stored in the tower, sending streams of sparks and burning material onto people gathered below for a festival.
A spokeswoman for Elche town hall said three firework operators were hospitalised for serious burns while 25 people were treated for minor injuries.
The Mayor of Elche, Mercedes Alonso, was jeered by the crowds as she left the event.
