June 29, 2012 (San Diego)--Your Independence Day celebration can be ruined if fireworks injure one of your family or friends. Cal Fire reminds everyone that all fireworks are illegal throughout San Diego County. Their use, transportation or possession could result in a fine or jail. Cal Fire also advises anyone causing a fire with fireworks would be responsible for the damages.
Fireworks last only a few seconds, but the burns and other injuries they cause, can last a lifetime. So don't celebrate the Fourth of July inthe hospital. Be fire safe, not sorry!
