Fire caused by fireworks

Fireworks enthrall adults and children alike. In their excitement, some people do not keep in mind the dangers associated with fireworks, especially illegal ones. San Bernardino Fire officials believe that illegal fireworks stored in a garage may have sparked a two-alarm apartment fire that displaced three families in the wee hours of the morning.

Reports indicate that when firefighters first arrived on the scene they witnessed heavy smoke and flames coming from an apartment building, explosions and debris shooting into the air. Damage was reported at about $25,000 and it is believed that the apartment unit was a complete loss. Luckily, there were no injuries.

With dry conditions throughout San Bernardino County, officials are warning residents of the potential risk of fire caused by fireworks. The Fourth of July and days surrounding it, account for more fires than any other days in the year.

Using illegal fireworks is against the law. However, San Bernardino County does allow the use of 'safe and sane' fireworks. If you are using fireworks on the Fourth of July, make sure there is a functioning water hose nearby and always supervise children who are lighting any.

It is important to know that fireworks are not toys; they can be dangerous and cause great harm. If you have been injured bymalfunctioning fireworks, contact an experienced San Bernardino Personal Injury attorney who can discuss your legal options with you.
