Millions in seized fireworks go up in smoke

Santo Domingo.- The Interior and Police Ministry on Friday incinerated 3.1 million pieces of fireworks, of the 5.3 million seized from various businesses nationwide during yearend festivities.

The large amount of firecrackers, roman candles and bottle rockets confiscated by the Ministry’s Fireworks Control Department (TOP) forced to realize two incinerations, the first on January 20, with 2.2 million units torched, said its director Jose Ramon Fadul in a statement.

The fireworks, worth millions of pesos, were seized in streets and businesses, despite the ban on their uncontroled sale.
