Metro area firefighters are on alert for illegal firework smugglers this week.

We found Moriarty is one of the only cities in New Mexico with no restrictions on the sale of fireworks.  We found it was incredibly easy to buy fireworks in Moriarty that are illegal to possess or use in Albuquerque.  We also found it easy to smuggle them in.

If caught with illegal fireworks, fire officials say jail time and fines are possible.  Local leaders urge New Mexicans to attend professional firework shows this Independence Day. 

Metro area professional firework shows on July 4th:
