Burn-bans have been lifted throughout Central Florida but fire officials warn lighting fireworks on the Fourth of July - during the downright dry weather - can still be dangerous."We have lifted the ban but the reality is as much rain as we've had, we're still dry," said Deputy Chief, Daniel McAvoy with the Osceola County fire department.He recommends people go watch a public, professional display, instead of lighting up bottle rockets, sky rockets, roman candles, sparklers, other common fireworks from home."What we recommend is go see the professionals do it, it will be a show, you'll enjoy it a lot better and then we won't have the calls we usually get," he said.Fireworks sellers, like Radley Williams, told FOX 35 Sunday lighting the fireworks correctly, is key."It has all been approved by the state fire marshal, it's all safe, none of this stuff is going to cause great harm - if you do it as your suppose to," he said.The trick he says, use a punk to light the wick - and the wick only, and quickly step far back before your big bangs and bright lights, light up the sky.
