HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP, York County, Pa. -- It's fireworks galore at Phantom Fireworks in New Freedom, York County.

The store is ready for its busiest day of the year, the Fourth of July.

Store manager, Bill Hunt says that while setting off fireworks is fun to do, there are some things you need to know to keep yourself and your family safe.

"You should have gloves, goggles, a water bucket nearby, in the case of a possible fire," Hunt said.

"You should also take into consideration how big the fireworks are and how much room you'll need for them. If you're going to shoot them in your backyard, you'll want to make sure everyone is at least 100-150 feet away; you don't want to be 20 feet away from it," he added.

Phantom Fireworks will be open for business on July 4th.
