Probably why fireworks are illegal

In this file photo Coeur d'Alene Tribe member Corrina Hendrickx, 19, sells fireworks at Indian Country Fireworks near Worley.

The Spokane Fire Department has a new video reminding folks that fireworks are dangerous and illegal in many Inland Northwest communities.

But the following videos might do a better job of making their point.

Oh, we probably should warn you that when fireworks displays and pyrotechnic experiments go badly, explicit language sometimes follows — so if you’re at work you might want to turn down the volume or use headphones.

We don't spend the Fourth in Spokane. Instead we go to a lake in a neighboring county where fireworks are still legal. Honestly, I don't like watching the boys set them off. Even after all these years it makes me nervous. I'm more of a sparkler gal.

Did you set fireworks off as a kid? Do your kids?
