NYPD Sets Off Confiscated Fireworks Stash


Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. New York City's police department started its Independence Day celebration a little early. At a firing range in the Bronx, the NYPD detonated more than 5,000 pounds of confiscated illegal fireworks. And of course they captured the scene on video.

INSKEEP: It's fun to be a police officer. Legal fireworks are scheduled to explode over New York's Hudson River tonight.
