State Fire Marshal Charles Duffy is reminding Washingtonians that the purchase of fireworks over the Internet is illegal. In Washington State, fireworks must be purchased from a licensed retail fireworks stand during the legal sales period. Orders for fireworks cannot be placed over the Internet or posted on websites such as Craig’s List. Residents should talk with family members and guests about the fireworks laws for their area. 

Independence Day is a time to celebrate our freedoms.  Personal fireworks require personal responsibility. Remember the three B’s of fireworks safety:

* Be Prepared — Have water nearby and put pets indoors

* Be Safe — Only adults should light fireworks

* Be Responsible — clean up fireworks debris
