Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue is urging people to remember their sparkler safety this 5th of November.
Paul Howes, technical fire safety manager, said: “Many people don’t realise just how dangerous sparklers can be and that’s really the problem.
“In terms of the number of accidents they are actually one of the most dangerous fireworks, reaching temperatures of up to 2,000°C.
“I’d urge parents to be particularly careful as children may not understand just how dangerous they are.
“Make sure they are dressed appropriately with no loose clothing, teach them how to use the sparkler safely at arm’s length, and ensure that they are supervised at all times.”
