(AP) State officials say fireworks sales can begin Wednesday in Nebraska.

The state licensed 703 fireworks stands this year. The state allows them to continue selling fireworks until midnight on July 4th, but some cities may shorten the selling period.

The State Fire Marshall's office reminds Nebraskans that some fireworks are still prohibited in the state, including wire sparklers and bottle rockets.

Officials say it's important to take precautions when using fireworks. Make sure to have a bucket of water nearby and never light fireworks near dry grass.

Also, stand several feet away from lit fireworks, and supervise children closely around fireworks.
