Illegal fireworks keep San Jose firefighters busy


SAN JOSE (KRON) — Illegal fireworks kept firefighters busy over the weekend in San Jose.

And the next few days could bring more of the same.

In a text book example of what can and frequently does happen when laws and warnings about illegal fireworks are flouted, a home on Yerba Buena Road suffered heavy damage when what is thought to have been a bottle rocket or other airborne firework landed in the back yard.

Nobody was hurt. But the fire displaced four adult residents as the flames for a time threatened to spread to neighboring homes.

The source of the fireworks has not been located but neighbors said there were lots of fireworks going off over the Fourth of July weekend.
