Gov. Christie warns against illegal fireworks in NJ

EASTON, Pa. - Gov. Chris Christie is warning people around New Jersey against the use of illegal fireworks.

Many residents visit surrounding states to purchase fireworks to bring back to New Jersey. In Pennsylvania, it is illegal for residents from that state to buy fireworks. But out-of-state residents are allowed to make the purchase.

The governor reminded residents that it is a crime in New Jersey to sell, use, and/or possess any kind of fireworks without a permit. Christie said the law is especially important in Monmouth County where water supply issues continue after a major water main break occurred last week.

State troopers and other law enforcement officers will be enforcing the state's laws to stem the flow of illegal fireworks into New Jersey from other states.
