As a former resident of 78th St.

Middle Township - As a former resident of 78th St. in Sea Isle, I well remember fireworks that set a house on fire. Fortunately, no one was physically injured, but the family who owned the duplex lost the use of it for months, and the rental from the other unit. Fireworks kill people each year, injure about 9,000 people and start about 15,000 fires including house/structure fires. Given the dry conditions, fireworks can start fires with the potential to injure/kill people and pets. Best to leave fireworks to the professionals.
