Fireworks Facts and Figures
In 1999, an estimated 24,200 fires involving fireworks were reported to fire departments. There was $17.2 million in direct property damage as a result of these fires. Fireworks-related fires have typically caused at least $15-$20 million in property loss (not adjusted for inflation) each year in the past decade.

Most fireworks-related injuries do not involve fires that are reported to fire departments. In 1999, an estimated 55 civilians were injured in reported fires caused by fireworks, but fireworks-related injuries reported to hospital emergency rooms alone totaled 8,500 the same year.

On a typical 4th of July, fireworks cause more fires in the U.S. than all other causes combined. But because most people encounter the risk of fireworks once a year, many Americans do not realize how great that risk is.
