Some of you probably got rattled out of your sleep by the sound of fireworks last night.

That's not just a nuisance. Setting off fireworks inside the city limits is illegal.

And if you get caught, you could be fined $2,000 for each opened package of fireworks found in your possession.

If you want to report illegal fireworks, don't call 9-1-1.

The phone number to call is 886-cops.

That’s 886-2677.
