As the Fourth of July approaches, the Police Department has issued an annual warning about a certain kind of explosive, what is called an ashcan or M-80, that looks remarkably like a candle, or a sparkler.
Many people have lost hands, fingers or even eyes to these explosives. Please look carefully before lighting anything, and to report illegal sales, delivery, or storage of illegal explosives call 1-800—347-3847, or 1-800-FIRE-TIPS.
