DOVER, Del. (AP) — Authorities in Delaware are warning people about the potential dangers of lighting off fireworks as some cities receive an increase in police calls reporting their use.

The Delaware Office of the State Fire Marshal issued a warning last week, saying fireworks could cause injuries or death. The agency also reminded citizens that most fireworks are illegal to use or sell in the state. News outlets report that the caution comes as police departments in Dover and Wilmington have reported seeing an increase in fireworks complaints in recent weeks as compared to the same period last year.
