There's a good reason fireworks are illegal in this area -- and these pictures show why! It's a shame that people can't just use common (actually uncommon) sense. Why would anyone set off fireworks in this drought and heat?

Smart aleks and dummies can live in expensive Kentlands just like in any other place. Obviously the human who did this has no "common" sense. Why do people live at the base of a volcano, or next to a beach and then get mad when their homes get destroyed? Beats me!
