The death of an 8-year-old boy at a July 4th block party in San Bernardino, a blast that ravaged an Ontario neighborhood and the recent seizure of 14,000 pounds of illegal fireworks at an Azusa home show how quickly the holiday can turn destructive and dangerous. A buyback program is being held Saturday, July 2 in Mission Hills to try to minimize the amount of illegal fireworks in Los Angeles County, Last year, more than 500 pounds of fireworks were swapped for gift cards. Thousands of people spend the holiday in emergency rooms every year, and the exploding skies leading up to July 4th can be dreadful for pets.
