With 4th of July just around the corner, what are the most dangerous fireworks?

It's almost the 4th of July, so it's time for fireworks.

I don't even need a calendar to tell me that the 4th of July is coming. I can just open up the windows of my house to see and hear all of the fireworks going off.

I can skip going downtown Rockford to see them. All I have to do is grab a lawn chair and set it up in my driveway. There's plenty of my neighbors that are blowing them off.

Sometimes I do like to have my own fireworks. That means driving across the border to Wisconsin to pick some up.

As you are walking up and down the aisles of the fireworks stand, you might want to know what is safe and what is dangerous.

In reality all fireworks are dangerous, but some are more than others.

So, what are the most dangerous fireworks?

According to newser.com,

"More than one-third of all fireworks-related injuries are caused by shell-and-mortar-style fireworks, making them the most dangerous Fourth of July pyrotechnic on the market."

So basically, all the fun stuff.

If that makes you worried, you may want to consider picking up some of the Illinois approved fireworks at the local grocery store.

Regardless, please be careful.
