Providence is cracking down on illegal fireworks.
Mayor Jorge Elorza says certain types are illegal because they're unsafe.
As the Fourth of July approaches, the city is reactivating its illegal fireworks task force.
In Rhode Island, handheld sparklers are legal and as well as ground sparklers.
Anyone with information is urged to call 401-272-3121.
