If fireworks are in your plans this Fourth of July, be sure to keep safety tips in mind

Email

WILLMAR -- Fireworks are a traditional part of the Fourth of July for many people, but safety officials urge people to remember that fireworks can be dangerous in the wrong hands, and some are illegal.

Some attention to basic safety precautions can prevent problems and increase enjoyment for families that choose to purchase real fireworks.

Fireworks that fly or explode are illegal in Minnesota, but things like sparklers are allowed.
