BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) — With the Fourth of July quickly approaching, we checked in with Gonzales fireworks stand, 621 Fireworks, for some essential safety tips. 

  • Keep children away from fireworks 
  • Never try to relight a firework that has not ignited fully
  • Keep a bucket of water nearby
  • Only light one firework at a time 
  • Avoid fireworks in brown paper, as those are meant for professional displays 

Many retailers are experiencing a shortage of fireworks this year, and 621 Fireworks owner Jaise Templet says he expects to sell out by the end of the day Sunday. The best time to stop by to stock up for your Fourth of July celebration would be now!
