FDNY confiscates nearly $3K in illegal fireworks
New York fire marshals confiscated some $2,700 in fireworks from a single illegal Manhattan vendor on Friday night, making a dent in a black-market trade that has been keeping city dwellers up at night.
The explosives were grabbed when marshals arrested Zhang Kaixiong, 23, officials said, charging him with reckless endangerment and the unlawful dealing of fireworks.
Photos of the confiscated fireworks showed them in packaging with names including “Ultimate 4th Shell Show” and “Barely Legal … Lock and Load.”
Fireworks are illegal in the city due to their dangerousness — including to pets.
