Public Safety Officials Warn Of Fireworks Dangers
It is a few days before the Fourth of July and Massachusetts public safety officials have issued the annual warning about fireworks.
Fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts except for use by licensed professionals. Springfield Fire Marshall David Rivera said pyrotechnics should never be in the hands of amateurs.
MassDot message boards along interstate highways will remind motorists that it is illegal to transport fireworks into Massachusetts that were purchased legally in other states.
