Safe and Sane fireworks went on sale Tuesday throughout California. Almost 30 locations in Stockton will be selling them through the 4th of July.

Customers are looking for pyrotechnics from fountains to sparklers with names like Jalapeno Popper, Sparknado, and the ever popular Piccolo Pete. 

Adrian Ozuna is looking at the prices, which range from a few dollars to $500.

“So I got to keep myself on a budget so I’m always looking for the deal,” says Ozuna.

Michael Abdallah is selling TNT fireworks that are approved by the state as safe and sane.

However, he says there are plenty of the illegal kind already out there.

“Like in my neighborhood they’ve been burning them the last 2 weekends, it’s gone crazy at night every day so I don’t know where they get them from but they got them illegally, they’re all over the place,” says Abdallah.

Illegal fireworks have been cited as a cause of fires most every year in California.

“TNT Fireworks” has released a new phone app to 50 cities in the state called “Nail Em.”

It will allow users to send locations and video of illegal fireworks to police and fire agencies.
