Word of Warning After Fireworks Displays

Those setting up fireworks displays across East Texas are double-checking their safety procedures, making sure everyone stays safe.

750 shells were lined up for the show at Lindsey Park. They're all professionally made and set up by a licensed expert. While the workers need to keep safety in mind, they say anyone near a fireworks display should keep an eye out. Very rarely, pieces of unexploded fireworks shells can come to earth.

"A word of caution, if anyone does ever find a shell such as one used in a commercial display, call the fire department. Don't mess with it," says Glenda Squyres, a licensed expert coordinating the Lindsey Park display.

If your children are around fireworks at home tonight, make sure they're watched at all times.
