“If you want to see fireworks we recommend you go to a public show and leave the fireworks to the experts. Never use illegal fireworks, anything that propels itself through the air or explodes is illegal. Use fireworks outdoors only, away from houses, vehicles, trees, or any other flammable object,” said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Erika Benitez.

If you plan on setting off fireworks, make sure to buy them from legal vendors. Closely supervise everyone coming into contact with fireworks or sparklers. Always have a bucket of water nearby if lighting fireworks or sparklers.
