MN State Fire Marshal's Office: Irresponsible Fireworks Displays Rack Up Over $1 Million In Property Damage In 2017
You'll likely hear a few booms this evening, as those fireworks fly, but if you're thinking of lighting your own, the Minnesota State Fire Marshal's Office says it may be better to just leave it to the professionals.
Last year, the Fire Marshal's Office says there was over $720,000 in property damage caused by fireworks in June and July alone.
Throughout the entire year, they're reporting 125 incidents that added up to a total of over $1.4 million in property damage.
The Fire Marshal's office is reminding people to always use fireworks away from trees and houses and to never point them at people, property or pets.
