Officials: "Don't light left over fireworks."
They sparked and dazzled, but in Marion County, fireworks also ignited several fires.
On the 4th of July, Marion County Fire Rescue received 25 fire-related calls, 13 of which were related to fireworks.
Ocala Fire Rescue received 34 calls and were also on high alert.
Officials say the recent rain isn't enough to get the County out of fire danger.
"Everything is still very easy to get ignited," Bart Walker of Marion County Fire Rescue and the Wildland Taskforce told TV20. "You know somebody throws a sparkler down, or something like that and it can very easily start a fire again."
Fire crews are still battling a 30-plus acre fire at Lake Bower in Belleview which was originally sparked by a lawnmower.
And officials say lighting a fire or left over fireworks, may cause more trouble than fun.
