    Updated:

    Celebrating with fireworks this Fourth of July may come with some restrictions or even a ban depending on where you live.

    Many cities, including Seattle, ban fireworks in an effort to take safety seriously over the holiday

    To give you an idea why some municipalities are so serious, on Monday two boys from Auburn were taken to the hospital. One of the boys had his fingers blown off by a firework he thought was dead. Click here for the full story.

    But not every city is banning fireworks.
