Police warning public of dangers of fireworks

The Suffolk County Police Department blew up a tool shed in an empty parking lot Tuesday to show how easily something can go wrong when storing or handling fireworks, which are illegal in New York. Nationwide in 2015, 11 people were killed in connection with fireworks. An estimated 8,000 people were also treated in emergency rooms that year over a 30-day period including the Fourth of July. Officials said sparklers that can burn up to 2,000 degrees are the No. 1 burn injury for children. They urged parents to set an example.
