Illegal Fireworks

By Stephanie Stang | 

Many of you may be heading south this holiday weekend to buy fireworks in Nashville. The owner at Sad Sams in Springfield Tennessee says about one-third of their business comes from Kentucky residents looking to buy fireworks that aren't sold in Kentucky.

The state Fire Marshal’s Office estimates that about half of the fireworks on the market are illegal in the Bluegrass. According to the state, any firework that has wings, fins or other mechanisms designed to help the device fly is illegal in Kentucky.

If the firework carries a warning label that includes words like explosive, flaming, or rocket, those are illegal as well.
