DUBLIN (CBS SF) – Hundreds of pounds of illegal fireworks were seized in the East Bay, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.

In Dublin, authorities seized a few hundred pounds of illegal pyrotechnics that were not ‘safe and sane.’

“Not a big seizure,” said Alameda Co. Sheriff’s Office a tweet. “But a reminder these are very dangerous and impact vulnerable people and animals. We will have extra patrols out the rest of the week to address firework issues.”

California-sanctioned ‘Safe and Sane Fireworks’ packages are legal in many parts of the state, including Dublin. They include an assortment of fireworks like sparklers and fountains, that stay on the ground and are not projectiles or explosives.
