Fireworks may be illegal in Georgia, but sparklers are not. With the July 4 holiday nearing, the state’s Fire Commissioner is urging residents to be cautious.
Sparklers can burn at temperatures of up to 1,800-degrees.
Fire Commissioner Ralph Hudgens reminds residents that sparklers should be used under adult supervision.
Each year, 8,000 people are treated for firework-related injuries. Most of those injured are children. Anyone caught using illegal fireworks in Georgia face up to $1,000 in fines or a year behind bars.
