Based on 2014-2018 annual averages:

  • Brush, grass, or forest fires accounted for three of every five (59 percent) of fireworks fires.
  • Only nine percent of the fireworks fireswere structure fires; but, these incidents accounted for almost all of the fire deaths, three-quarters (74 percent) of the fire injuries, and 45 percent of the fire property damage.
  • More than one-quarter (28 percent) of fires started by fireworks in 2014–2018 were reported on the Fourth of July.
  • The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that 9,100 consumer fireworks-related injuries were seen in US hospital emergency departments in 2018.*
