Fireworks Safety: You Could Be To Blame If You Start A Fire
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) - In a typical year, more fires in the United States are reported on the Fourth of July than on any other day.
Fireworks account for igniting a large portion of these fires.
With the fire danger high on the Twin Falls District, a single spark can create a major disaster.
Firefighters want to remind members of the community to be cautious while enjoying fireworks this year.
KMVT News was curious who would be to blame if fireworks started a fire?
So we went down to the Twin Falls Fire Department to find out.
"Well certainly, there is a possibility of being held responsible. There are liabilities. People need to keep in mind these are a dangerous thing to have around,” said Captain Allen Shropshire, Twin Falls Fire Department.
