Illegal Online Internet Fireworks Sales Monitored By CAL FIRE

Special Cal Fire Enforcement Team Will Patrol The Internet

This Fourth of July Holiday pro active Cal Fire team will search for problem fireworks online sales before they cause real problems such as fires and injuries this holiday.

“It's against the law to sell fireworks on the internet, but we're constantly looking at sites like Craigslist,” Cal Fire Spokesman Daniel Berlant said.

Berlant says the people behind the ads usually leave a phone number or address, making it very easy to make the bust.

Every year, Cal Fire seizes 65,000 to 100,000 pounds of illegal fireworks.
