Dublin Fire Brigade's chief fire officer has said it's important that parents of young children know where they are and make sure they are supervised this Halloween

Dublin Fire Brigade’s chief fire officer has said it’s important that parents of young children know where they are and make sure they are supervised.

“Even a sparkler can burn at extreme temperatures, sparklers themselves can burn over 900 degrees Celsius – that’s six or seven times hotter than your hot frying pan,” Keeley said.

Keeley said it is important that parents and guardians of young children know where they are and make sure they are supervised.

Chief Superintendent for the DMR North Central, Patrick McMenamin, also took the opportunity to remind people that they could face serious criminal sanctions for possession of illegal fireworks. It is an offence to possess a firework with intent to sell or supply, without a licence; light illegal fireworks; or throw or direct a lit firework at any person or property.

He said there are seizures every year at this time of year and this will continue right up to and beyond Halloween.
