Think Twice Before Using Illegal Fireworks

It Could Cost You a Murder Charge

According to Officer Ibrahim of the Santa Clarita Fire Station, if your illegal fireworks causes a fire that results in a fire fighter's death, you could be faced with a murder charge.

That's something to consider for a few moments of fun.

And you would also be responsible for the financial costs incurred putting out that fire.

The City of Santa Clarita stated the following in their news release: "State law provides for a fine of at least $500 and/or a year in jail upon conviction for violating fireworks laws. Some violations are a felony! Fireworks may cause burns, injuries and fires. Violators can be held responsible for damages, as well as having to pay a fine and/or go to jail. Parents are liable for any damage or injuries caused by their children using fireworks."
