WATCH: Illegal Fireworks boomed throughout Los Angeles the 4th of July

Stunning video captured illegal fireworks booming throughout Los Angeles despite a ban.

KCAL9/CBS2’s chopper captured the images throughout LA County on Saturday night.


At 9:33pm PST, the Los Angeles Police was forced to tweet:

We ask that you please NOT call 911 for illegal fireworks unless someone is hurt or there is a fire. You are tying up 911 for other life-threatening emergencies.

As of this post, we’re holding nearly 50 calls on 911 & over 170 on non-emergency.

Those who call 911 for fireworks WILL be transferred to non-emergency.

Instead, call 877-ASK-LAPD directly or report online at We’re currently holding almost 800 online reports. There will be delays tonight. We apologize.
