erALHAMBRA - Fireworks can be dangerous and deadly, a fact that many people don’t seem to take seriously when celebrating Independence Day.

Capt. Tim Sell is a paramedic with Pasadena’s Fire Department. Even though all fireworks are illegal in the city, they still roll out on calls from people who don’t realize how dangerous fireworks can be.

“People have had some extensive burns to their hands and face as well as loss of digits and limbs,” Sell said. “A sparkler can reach up to 2,000 degrees.”

Last year, 11 people died using fireworks, and 11,900 people were hurt, the most in 15 years, according to a report released Thursday by the Consumer Product Safety Commission.  More
