Fireworks are pretty to look at, but are very dangerous to touch! Every year, thousands of fires are started and thousands of people, mostly children, are injured by fireworks. Even sparklers can reach a temperature of 1200° F and can stay hot long after they have burned out. The best way to enjoy fireworks is to go to a public display in your community. Fireworks are not toys! If you or your friends ever find fireworks, tell a grown-up right away!
