BRYAN COUNTY, OK----The fourth of July is less than two weeks away and all across Texoma fireworks shops are opening up. Today, is the first day they can start selling fireworks in Texas  and Oklahoma's selling season kicked off about a week ago.    

Store workers at Fireworks World in Calera said they expect to sell more fireworks this season. This year, there are no burn bans in place leading up to the fourth and Texoma has recently received some rain. Workers said these are the ideal conditions for setting off fireworks.

"We've already had a busy season and the weekend before the fourth through the fourth will be our busiest time," volunteer worker Randi Nabors said.

Last year, fireworks sales were nearly a $1 billion dollar business nationwide.
Right now, a lot of cities in Texoma have banned the use of fireworks within the city limits and some counties also restrict what type of fireworks you can use.  Before you buy them, be sure to check with your local authorities on rules and regulations.
