July is a wonderful time to be with family and friends.  There is an abundance of wonder and beauty all around our area.  There can also be great danger.  The Fourth of July can potentially present great fire hazards to humans and the surrounding environment.  The Fourth has the highest report of burn injuries associated with misuse of fireworks.  You can save yourself from starting fires or causing injury by leaving fireworks to those trained to display them.  Feel free to take a moment to read up on Holiday Fire Safety at the Knoxville Fire Department link on the City of Knoxville website:
