Guam - The Guam Fire Department is investigating who is smuggling fireworks into the island. Fire marshal Captain Joey Manibusan says on New Year's Eve, there were unauthorized fireworks in Yigo and Dededo as no permits were obtained for those displays.  He stresses that all fireworks are illegal unless individuals receive authorization from the fire department.

"Fireworks are explosives and they can be very dangerous especially if they're storing them in their homes. They can create a lot of damage. They can explode," he explained.

GFD is working with Customs to determine how the fireworks are being smuggled into the island.

Anyone with information about the illegal fireworks that were seen on New Year's Eve in Dededo and Yigo is asked to contact GFD at 646-8810 or Crimestoppers at 477-HRLP (4357).
