Wildfire prevention: How to safely use fireworks

Updated:

Several wildfires are burning in our state.

Between the deadly Yarnell Hill Fire, the Dean Fire and the Doce Fire, crews have a lot of work on their hands battling dangerous flames.

Firefighters want to make sure no more pop up this Independence Day because of fireworks.

There's a lot of dry brush across the state and we're still seeing a lot of dry weather conditions and gusty winds.

One spark from a firework or a sparkler can cause the brush to ignite.

Colin Williams with Rural Metro Fire shares how to celebrate safely.
