summer. there's a reason this guy is running.(nats: fireworks explode)he just lit an m- one-thousand as part of a demonstration the alameda county sheriff's office bomb squad put on for kron four. "that was one. often time's you'll see people putting many of these together to make an even bigger explosion." obviously that's a dumb idea. these often-homemade fireworks might be better described as bombs."these are so dangerous. one of these here will permanently disfigure you, take your hand off. i can't tell you how bad these are." and there's a whole box of them inside this storage unit, along with other things that snap, crackle, and pop."just firecrackers."sergeant ray kelly says police and fire departments around the county confiscated about three tons of illegal fireworks this year - three times as much as the haul from 2016.look how full the trailer is nowcompared to when we stopped by a week before the holiday.there are still a few more pickups the sheriff's office has scheduled for this weekend around the countythough fortunately some places like fremont don't have a whole lot of illegal
explosives to turn in."our seizure here was a little dent out of it but ya know it's a pretty big endeavor to try to get every firework off the street. it's probably impossible."but worth the effortto get these..(boom!) away from families and pets. probably wondering what happens to all of them.state fire marshal's office actually has a budget specifically set aside to disposing of them properly so they don't pollute the air or the soil.live in alameda county, spencer blake, kron four news. a warming trend is expected to begin today as high pressure builds into california from the desert southwest. very warm to hot conditions are expected to return to inland areas over the weekend.
