If the noise level is any indication- the economy has hit this south K.C. neighborhood hard this year.
There wasn't nearly the fireworks shot off around here as in years past.
I heard just one firework-related injury- minor- from midnight to 7am this Saturday morning- as well as one house fire in KC-KS possibly caused by fireworks.
That wasn't the case nationwide- 37 were injured in an Iowa fireworks accident- and at the bottom of this Associated Press article- a short list of some firework injuries nationwide.
