GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – If you plan on buying your own fireworks on this Fourth of July holiday, local fire officials want to remind you of the rules.
Greenville Fire and Rescue inspectors went through one firework shop on Memorial Drive Friday morning. They said if you are buying fireworks, always remember to never re-light a dud, always have a bucket of water nearby and make sure your kids stand back.
“Anything combustible can burn it should be away from property. This is what we call consumer fireworks here that you can purchase from under the tent that they don’t leave the ground, pop, or go up in the air,” said Lieutenant Patrick Dunn.
Dunn wants everyone to be safe while enjoying the fireworks.
