Last week about this time, I was encouraging all of us to be extra mindful when it comes to water safety this summer.
And a week later – during 4th of July week -- the other real concern is one of the other elements: fire – as in fireworks.
Who would have thought we'd be telling the story of an east-side home damaged by fire after police say two teens set off fire works.
No injuries ... that's the good news.
I get it. There ARE legal fireworks we can enjoy … outdoors. But just like anything else – all that sizzle needs some supervision and yes – plenty of water at the ready in case the fireworks get out of hand.
But think about it … wouldn't it be more fun to sit back and relax and let the professional handle the pyrotechnics. I think so.
