Duxbury Fire wants to remind everyone to have a safe fourth of July and please remember that fireworks are illegal, MGL Ch. 148 S.39 prohibits private citizens to use, possess or sell fireworks in Massachusetts and prohibits the purchase of them elsewhere and then transport them into the State. The law prohibits any article designed to produce a visible or audible effect.
