State Urges Safety On Fireworks

The coming of the New Year, means once again, some people will be celebrating with fireworks. Tonight, the state of Texas wants to remind you of a few simple rules.

Follow directions of fireworks carefully, always under adult supervision. Only light fireworks outdoors in a safe area away from dry grass and buildings.

Keep a bucket of water, wet towels or a garden hose nearby. And never shoot fireworks from metal or glass containers.
