    Man severely injured by ‘mortar-type’ firework he was setting off in Anaheim
    • July 5, 2024

    A Fourth of July reveler seriously injured himself on Thursday night, July 4, while setting off a mortar-type firework, authorities said.

    Officers and firefighters responded just before 9 p.m. to reports of a firework-related injury in the 1700 block of South Dallas Drive, said Sgt. Jonathan McClintock, an Anaheim police and fire spokesman.

    The first responders learned that the man had lit off the firework and suffered severe head injuries, the sergeant said. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition.

    The only fireworks legally allowed in Anaheim are those that have been deemed “safe and sane” by the Office of the State Fire Marshal.

    Mortar and mortar-like fireworks are not included in that category, the sergeant said.
