Stamford hopes residents don't have a July 4th 'blast'
As the Fourth of July approaches, Connecticut fire officials are warning about the dangers of fireworks. Members of the Stamford Fire Marshal?s Office participated in a demonstration Friday to show that even legal fireworks can cause serious injury. They want to remind residents that any firework that shoots 30 feet in the air and detonates is illegal. Officials have also been out on the streets hoping to crack down on any fireworks sellers who are breaking the law. They also want to remind residents that anyone under 16 cannot purchase or use fireworks in the state.
