With the fourth of July only two weeks away, fireworks, sparklers and other independence day items have popped up in stores. For those of you thinking about purchasing some of these items, keep in mind rules and regulations. For example, no fireworks of any kind are allowed in Charlottesville, but Albemarle County allows legal fireworks.

"There are some legal limitations on the fireworks that they can use here in Albemarle County. You can't use anything that fires projectiles in the air, or travels in the air or travels laterally. You can use things like sparklers or pharaohs, things that stay on the ground," explained Lee Catlin, The Albemarle County Spokeswoman.

For a complete list of guidelines on fireworks in Albemarle County, check out their website at here.
